Dental implant surgery requires a number of tools, from bone grafting materials to sinus lift equipment. Preparing the surgical site can be a lengthy process, as the surgeon is often required to add bone mass and stability for a perfect, lasting fit.

Dental implant supplies must be as well-made as the implants themselves, which is why Surgikor places a premium on durability in everything we sell. Whether you’re looking for allograft materials or you need a Titanium Mini Screw Master or Bone Crester, we offer the industry standard in strength, materials and design.

Dental Implants Still Growing Year Over Year

We have written before about how dental implants are transforming the dental profession, and why demand for dental surgery instruments continues to explode. One principal reason is because dental implantology gets better every year: today you can avail yourself of cutting edge tools such as digital surgical guides and pure bone grafting materials.

This recent report says it all about the coming surge in Europe and Asia for these products:

Titanium based dental implant is the largest market by materials and is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 9.8% from 2014 to 2020.

Typically we see a concomitant rise in U.S. sales and demand, driven by the same worldwide interest in affordable and permanent solutions for edentulous mouths.

Know Your Dental Instruments

It is a strange day in the world of dental instruments when these professional medical devices become the subject of a government sting. But that is precisely what happened when officials in the UK seized many thousands of counterfeit dental devices recently en route to online retailers such as eBay and Amazon:

The illegal products, ranging from drills to radiography systems, were counterfeit copies of major brands or substandard with fake documentation, according to the MHRA. Among the items seized were handpiece drills that could malfunction and disintegrate in patients’ mouths, dental x-ray systems that emit high levels of radiation, and root canal files that could break.

It isn’t hard to imagine why such a market might arise: dental tools such as bone grafting material and collagen products can be expensive, and with good reason. These are medical grade materials designed to heal without harming, and in some cases, to remain indefinitely in the body.

All the more reason to exercise caution and to purchase only from dental material provides you know and trust:

“Dentists must source their dental equipment from reputable suppliers. Purchasing from auction websites and being unable to verify the integrity of the seller has the potential to increase risks to patients and cause reputational damage to the dental profession,” Jeffrey said.
