This is the first of several posts, where we will open a topic a discussion based on an interesting new product we found at the recent International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne. In this post, we invite your comments on a new device called MED (Miniaturized Electromagnetic Device) from magdent.
Developed by a periodontist, Magdent’s MED utilizes the well-known and clinically accepted treatment method of electromagnetics fields to stimulate bone formation, improve bone density & suppress peri-implantitis and peri implant mucositis. Magdent’s MED — incorporates a battery, an electronic device and a coil that fits most implant models in much the same way as today’s simple healing cap. The unique design eliminates the external devices currently used during implant surgery.
In terms of research, there is a histological and microcomputed tomography study in a rabbits that has been accepted for publication by Clinical Oral Implants Research. More information about this this study and additional research is available here.
Below you can also watch a video introduction about the product.
What are your thoughts on the MED and the possibility of using an electromagentic field to stimulate bone formation and suppress peri-implantitis?
