The Magnetic Mallet is a totally innovative instrument for dental and implant surgery, the main applications of which are in maxillary sinus lift, in protocols of vertical and horizontal bone compaction and expansion and, more generally, in all cases where the surgical hammer is normally used.
The device makes use of electromagnetic impact, which allows a high-intensity and brief impact force such as to obtain plastic deformation of the bone, but without spreading throughout the skull, as usually occurs with the blows of the surgical hammer. In this way the use of the Magnetic Mallet prevents the so-called benign paroxysmal vertigo syndrome, that is the post-operative symptom of vertiginous nature.
The 4 different working intensities offered by the instrument allow the surgeon to modulate the force according to the type of operation and the receiving bone, proceeding with a greater safety margin and higher precision. Moreover, the pre-set intensities allow a repeatability of protocols that is very difficult or even impossible to achieve with manual instruments.
The ergonomic handpiece of the Magnetic Mallet is used with only one hand and the impulses are applied with a control pedal, leaving the other hand free and allowing greater visibility of the operating field.
The numerous clinicians that have already adopted this instrument in everyday implant practice all report the same sensation of extreme precision during the penetration of the bone expanders. In fact a bone with a shell of very corticated bone and poorly mineralized inside, due to its nature usually deviates the path of the manual osteotome when it passes from one interface to the other. In addition the same dynamic of the surgical hammer sometimes transmits forces to the osteotome which are not exactly ortagonal to the work surface, causing accidental shifts of axis which in inexpert hands are not easy to manage.
The standard kit supplied with the Magnetic Mallet comprises a set of 10 tips including blades, bone expanders and drivers for inserting implants.
With this kit it is possible to tackle all the various applications for which the instrument has been developed. A pool of biomechanical engineers constantly follows the development of new tips for new use protocols.
