Your compass for tomorrow’s dental surgery

This is the slogan that the medical technology company W&H is using to launch a new product compass to highlight synergies between its devices. As a full-service provider in the areas of oral surgery and implantology, the medical technology company W&H provides optimal support to surgeons for a wide variety of treatments: from tooth extractions to surgical periodontology, and lateral sinus lifts to implant stability measurements. W&H devices are safe and reliable, always at the cutting edge and facilitate perfect treatment results.

At the heart of the workflow-controlled overall solution is Implantmed Plus, the reliable W&H motor for
implantology and oral surgery. Along with the Piezomed module as an add-on solution, W&H is changing
working methods for oral surgeons. The unique combination of devices allows users to access all the
advantages of precise ultrasonic technology. The Implantmed Plus is an absolute all-rounder. It opens
up new perspectives for treating patients and for individual implantology and surgical workflows. Users
always have the right device on hand in a compact and space-saving form, whatever the application.
The modular system’s standardised operation simplifies the practice team’s daily workflows. What’s
more, only irrigation tubing and a saline solution are required. The device’s optimised handling is
therefore a crucial success factor.

All products and functionalities that come with the new W&H product compass are fully tailored to the
user’s workflow: W&H’s surgical contra-angle handpieces allow procedures to be performed with
unrivalled precision, while the wireless foot control ensures greater comfort and freedom of movement.
The Osstell Beacon for measuring implant stability provides certainty in assessing the correct loading
time for an implant. Comprehensive documentation guarantees full traceability. “What makes our
solution is the interaction between the surgical devices Implantmed and Piezomed, together with the
implant stability measurement provided by Osstell measuring tools. This means that all treatments can
be handled using devices from a single source,” explains Isabella Schmied, W&H Product Manager in
the oral surgery area.


Osstell – the Beacon as a guide and orientation tool

Osstell has been part of the international W&H Group since 2018. The company supports dentists and
oral surgeons around the world to carry out implant treatments safely and effectively.
Osstell facilitates predictable implantation procedures using resonance frequency analysis, a method of
measuring the stability of an implant in the bone without contact. The treating dentists can quickly and
easily determine whether an implant can be prosthetically loaded or whether an implant requires
additional healing time. This results in a better treatment prognosis and quality of treatment – for patients
and dentists.
