The device, invented by Israeli company Magdent, is approved in the EU, and is due to be marketed to UK dentists early next year. By using electromagnetic transmitters in the end of the screw, the new implant procedure can speed up the integration process by between 40%-70%.
Electromagnetic fields are already used by surgeons to heal complicated bone fractures because they encourage the creation of bone-building cells. Traditionally, Dental implants – a fixed alternative to removable dentures – are fitted in two stages, starting with inserting a screw to hold the tooth in the jawbone. Patients then have to wait up to nine months for the bone to ‘integrate’ with the metal screw before a tooth can be fitted on to it.
The company claims the new technology has significant potential for patients who were previously considered to be risky dental-implant candidates because of poor bone quality due to osteoporosis or cancer treatments that weaken bone strength.
Magdent boss Elad Yakobson explained: “All dental implants use titanium screws, and many companies have tried to accelerate osseointegration by changing the shape of the screw, but the differences are minor. Ours is the first innovation that lets the doctor actively influence the healing process. The MED creates stimulation from microelectronics inside the healing abutment and can help people whose jawbone was not considered good enough to take an implant.”
In addition to shortening the integration process and improving the quality of the bone by up to 40%, MED may prove helpful in preventing or treating peri-implantitis, an infection that can occur around the dental implant after the procedure, as electromagnetic stimulation helps to kill bacteria.
