BERLN, Germany: The CleanImplant Foundation has awarded the Kontact S implant system from French manufacturer Biotech Dental with the Trusted Quality Mark. This quality seal, which confirms first-class surface purity of dental implants, is only awarded by the scientific advisory board of the CleanImplant Foundation after a rigorous analysis and testing process. The independent non-profit organisation aims to increase transparency with regard to the surface cleanliness of dental implants in the market.

Phillipe Veran, CEO and founder of Biotech Dental, was delighted with this recognition: “At Biotech Dental, we have always been committed to the highest quality standards in implant design and production processes. We will never accept compromise in our product quality. We owe it to our customers and patients.”

A growing number of companies and dentists support the CleanImplant Foundation. The results of the major quality assessments conducted by Dr Dirk U. Duddeck, founder and head of research at CleanImplant, show that a clean implant surface cannot be taken for granted. Unfortunately, there are still far too many sterile-packaged implant systems of inferior quality with considerable impurities from the production and or packaging process, according to Dr Duddeck. “If implant manufacturers claim the highest quality standards, they must also guarantee these in terms of the cleanliness of implant surfaces. Only then, can manufacturers live up to their quality promise to practitioners and patients 100%,” he said.

To date, a total of 12 implant systems from well-known manufacturers have received the Trusted Quality seal for their products after implementing the CleanImplant consensus-based guideline in its production processes.

The certification has been awarded for selected implant systems made by the following manufacturers: bredent medical, BTI, Camlog, Global D, medentis medical, MegaGen, Nobel Biocare, NucleOSS, Sweden & Martina, Straumann, Zircon Medical and SDS. Most recently, the CeramTec Group was awarded the newly established Certified Production Quality seal—a mark that recognises outstanding production standards in manufacturing.
