Synea Vision – the new dimension in shadow-free preparation
The new Synea Vision turbine is the fruit of many years of intensive development work. To do justice to all the market's requirements, close cooperation with users was of pivotal importance to W&H at all stages. This made it possible to develop an instrument which not only stands out because of its long-term value, but also and above all because of the unique advantages it offers in medical applications.
Due to the difficult visibility and light conditions in the patient's oral cavity, precise, safe working in limited space takes on great importance. With the new 5 x Ring LED+, the Synea Vision turbines allow 100% shadow-free illumination of the treatment site for the very first time. The preparation site is not only illuminated from mesial, but also from buccal, distal and lingual/palatal at the same time. This considerably increases the safety during treatment.
Current developments focus on minimally invasive procedures with less post-operative pain for the patient and a faster healing time. Piezo technology has increasingly been finding its way into oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) and implantology for more than a decade. Maximum precision in surgical use and gentler treatment for the patient are just some of the advantages of this cutting-edge drive technology. With the new Piezomed, W&H can use state-of-the-art ultrasound technology for even the most demanding tasks in bone surgery, providing the surgeon with optimal support in his daily work.
A new dimension in bone surgery
The new surgical instrument from W&H employs state-of-the-art ultrasound technology. High-frequency microvibrations enable high-precision incisions while the so-called cavitation effect ensures an almost blood-free surgical site and an excellent view of the treatment area.
In addition to these clear benefits of cutting-edge piezo technology, W&H offers maximum safety during operation with its patented automatic instrument detection. Piezomed detects the instrument during insertion and sets the correct power class automatically. This significantly lowers the risk of overloading the instruments.
