F.A.Q.

Frequently asked questions and answers about the dynamic magnetic technology.
Why should I buy the Magnetic Mallet?

It can simplify procedures by offering a wider range of options on how to handle a case. For a more conservative approach, to be able to manage multiple applications with the same device and to save time and money.

How does the patient feel during a Magnetic Mallet surgery?

Generally  the perception reported is minimal. The patient will be able to hear the sound of the percussion of the two magnets necessary to generate the acceleration.

In general, highlighting the benefits of technology, mostly the absence of perforation and cuts and the possibility of avoiding benign paroxysmal vertiginous syndrome, leads the patient to perceive the great advantage of this technology at the expense of an initially unrecognizable noise in oral surgery.

How to define the force to be used in the range from 1 to 4?

The choice of force depends on the type of bone and the surgical procedure to be performed (the protocols suggest which force to use on a case-by-case basis). New users generally start with strength 1 or 2 and progressively increase it to 3 and 4 as they become more aware of the tool.

Why does the procedure not need irrigation?

The acceleration of the instrument guarantees a very limited friction so that the heat generated is almost zero and well below the temperature that requires irrigation.

This is also due to the duration of the operation which is very short compared to the use of alternative devices to perform the same surgical procedure. Another advantage of the absence of friction concerns the tools that do not wear out and therefore do not need to be replaced

Is it possible to have a continuous pulse instead of a single pulse?

This is a very common question among doctors before using dynamic magnetic technology. In reality, the continuous impulse is not necessary because the procedures are all very fast and generally the procedures require from 5 to 15 impulses to be completed. There is therefore no need to speed them up further by sacrificing total control of the device.

In some procedures, it is also advisable to wait 3/5 seconds between each pulse to maximize the effects on the elasticity of the bone.

I don't intend to use a jackhammer on my patients!

We totally agree with you and that is why we invented the magnetic-dynamic technology. Decades of scientific publications broadly and comprehensively highlight the benefits of osteotomes in bone condensation and modeling. We have improved this by solving the mechanical problem of manual use of the hammer.

Will I no longer need drills and other tools using the Magnetic Mallet?

When you start using the Mallet you tend to do everything with just one device. However, this does not mean that cutters, piezos and rotary instruments are no longer necessary. Our technology is an additional option for the operator in performing surgery. Which device to prefer and when is always the doctor’s choice.

Is it possible to insert implants with the Magnetic Mallet?

Yes, most operators tend to use the Mallet to insert percussion systems.

However, we have not developed and are not promoting a specific protocol for this procedure as there are other device-independent variables over which we have no control, such as the type of implant used and the bone density for example.

Why should I use it for extractions, since I've never had a problem with my tools?

For extractions, the Magnetic Mallet or Easy Root can cause a marginal improvement in the result. For example, when an ankylosed root is extracted with traditional instruments, it is accepted that a portion of the bone mass will be permanently lost, that the drill must be used, and that the procedure is invasive. By using the Magnetic Mallet instead, there is likely to be no bone loss and the soft tissues are also well preserved. The technology therefore can raise the bar in terms of what is perceived as a reasonable expectation. The same concept can also be considered for horizontal expansion or sinus lift.

There is therefore a change of perspective due to “what I usually expect and what I have always done” compared to “what I can achieve today using a different technology”.

Can the handpiece and cable be sterilized in an autoclave?

Yes, each device comes with a user manual that explains how.

Can I use it for trial surgery?

In general yes, but it depends on the distributor’s policy. We always suggest using it on a trial surgery for procedures that are well known to the operator (extraction, bone condensation or sinus lift) so that the result can be compared in a comparative manner.

Can I perform a maxillary sinus lift with a vestibular approach (window technique)?

It is potentially feasible if this is the treatment plan decided by the doctor, however other devices such as piezos are more advisable. The Mallet was designed for the transcrestal approach and we have protocols for the treatment of sinus lift with a crestal approach even when residual volumes are limited.

Is the Magnetic Mallet comparable to the piezo?

No, the two devices work differently. The piezo is designed to cut bone, the Mallet to expand and shape it.
