A touch of Swiss genius
The Swiss company Bien-Air is revolutionizing the dental industry. It has just launched a pioneering world first onto the market: iChiropro enables practitioners to control their implantology and surgery system using an iPad.
Long awaited but now finally available, this major innovation offers them unprecedented new functions which will simplify their work thanks to a more intuitive approach and a control system with a perfectly ergonomic design.
This is a stroke of genius for Bien-Air, located in Bienne at the heart of the Swiss Watch Valley. It is the first company to develop and manufacture such a system. It has already impressed the biggest players: In fact, iChiropro has just been chosen by the world's second biggest dental implant maker, Nobel Biocare.
iChiropro is the newest trend in dental surgeries across the globe.
This revolutionary system paves the way for a new generation of medical devices. It enables practitioners to improve levels of comfort, efficiency and also safety. Each procedure is automatically linked with the patient's file which is integrated into the iPad control interface. iChiropro documents all of the operations performed, thereby ensuring constant and extremely rigorous monitoring of practitioners' activity. Moreover, iChiropro enables multiple users to save their own settings. Finally, it is pre-programmed with the complete operating sequences from the largest implant manufacturers.
iChiropro is equipped with the technological innovations for which Bien-Air has become renowned: the MX-i LED micromotor with lifetime-lubricated and maintenance-free ceramic ball bearings, and the CA 20:1 L Micro-Series internal irrigation contra-angle, fitted with one of the smallest heads ever designed and a double LED system for uniform lighting.
A implantology and surgery system controlled using an iPad
iChiropro: bringing simplicity to implantology. It has brand new practical functions, and offers a level of usability never before experienced. The iChiropro interface integrates all of the patient file data and enables ten practitioners to save their own settings and information. The intuitive control system considerably improves the ergonomics and efficiency.
This all-in-one high-performance solution surpasses anything already on the market.
On the interface screen, the practitioner can control the speed, torque, irrigation and luminosity. For quick and effective use, it has the complete pre-programmed operating sequences and predefined settings for 7 of the biggest implant manufacturers and these settings can be modified with the swipe of a finger. You can also save your own user settings at any time, according to your preferences.
It is the only device which allows users to save, export and print all of the parameters for an operation whilst linking these with the patient's data and the implants used. In the event of a dispute with a patient, iChiropro can immediately provide all of the documentary evidence necessary.
iChiropro also enables emails to be sent directly from the interface. It benefits from an on-line user manual, news, Bien-Air product catalogue and web TV.
Thanks to the iPad, practitioners can control the system in the same way as all the other systems equipped with touchscreen displays that they use on a daily basis. Gone are the days where a high-tech surgery is equipped with old generation control screens. Practitioners can now use the "must have" control system! It offers a high degree of clarity and state-of-the-art modern technology, thanks to the best tool in the field: the iPad.
Available free of charge from the Apple App Store, the iChiropro and iChiropro Surgery applications open up a world of customisation options. New practical and innovative functions will be added regularly to further enhance the performance levels of the system.
The Chiropro L by Bien-Air was already a market leader. The iChiropro will follow in its footsteps, equipped with technologies for which the Swiss company has become renowned. It can be supplied with:
iChiropro is the essential device for modern practitioners! It is designed for practitioners who are looking for greater comfort at work, who want to get the best performance from their facilities and who are keen to save time.
Practitioners from across the world have collectively expressed their interest and were very enthusiastic when the prototypes of this new implantology system were presented. Many of them described it as "indispensable"!
An approved and sound system
The iChiropro has been successfully approved. The iPad has a control interface function. The motor and its various peripherals are controlled by the system's electronics. It is also possible to apply a sterile film to the touchscreen display.
Bien-Air pushes the boundaries of innovation
Bien-Air, a leader in the manufacture of micromotors, has been active in the field of implantology and surgery for many years. After developing several systems, the company wanted to push the boundaries of innovation with a revolutionary concept.
iChiropro stands head and shoulders above its competitors thanks to its system which offers incomparable levels of performance.
These are just the first steps for the company: over the coming years, it is going to maintain its high-end positioning and the excellent quality level of its products, consolidate its "Swiss Made" image and continue to surprise everyone by focussing on innovative and high-tech developments, with the ultimate goal of simplifying practitioners' work.

– The company director, Edgar Schönbächler, shares his vision of Bien-Air –
"Accuracy and quality are part of the DNA of this region"
With iChiropro, you have just launched a revolutionary system onto the market. What was the vision behind this move?
We wanted to offer a implantology and surgery system with entirely new functions which would help simplify practitioners' lives. We are offering a versatile system, which can be adapted to the specific requirements of each practitioner. Just as the iPad offers its users a new experience, we are doing the same with iChiropro.
How will the lives of practitioners change?
iChiropro will radically change their work flow. Not only does it have the best performing motor on the market, it is also a tool which enables them to dedicate their time to the most important tasks by automating the "cumbersome" processes relating to operations. In fact, they will no longer need to modify parameters during operations, nor worry about documenting their work as this task will automatically be performed by our system. Furthermore, the beauty and high quality of the product help build the relationship of trust between the dentist and patient. It design fits perfectly into modern dental surgeries.
What is your company's philosophy?
Since our inception in 1959, we have always wanted to design and produce the best instruments, to facilitate the work of practitioners and improve patient comfort. We specialise in rotary instruments and, because the scale of our business is still quite intimate, we know our customers extremely well. Therefore we are able to meet their needs better than any other company. This means that we can design our products to be integrated into increasingly complex dental surgeries, where digital technology is becoming ever more prominent.
Which instruments and technologies have made your company successful?
Everything began with the creation and commercialisation of the very first reliable turbine. The products we have marketed have become symbols of quality for practitioners: whether that be the Gyro air turbine, MC1, MC2 and MC3 micromotors, Chiropro technology… our values have remained the same over the years: passion, innovation, precision, commitment. We can now rely on over 50 years of tradition and innovation.
Your activity takes place in the heart of Watch Valley, which is the birthplace of the "Swiss Made" reputation: what influence does this region have on your business?
Accuracy and quality are part of the DNA of this region. Our employees have been raised and trained in this culture of excellence and reliability. These requirements are very demanding: this is how we can guarantee that we will always be one step ahead of our competitors. In this region, we also benefit from training centres of exceptional high quality thanks to the watchmaking industry, whose influence extends across the culture of the entire region. To keep our employees up to standard, we also run our own training sessions.
You have just made huge progress in implantology and surgery. How do you view the future of your company?
We plan to carry on doing what we already know how to do better than all of our competitors and to adapt our products to the real-life situations of present day dental surgeries. We will continue to develop solutions and systems with the same vision: offering innovative products which always provide a benefit for both the user and the patient.
Straumann Launches Roxolid® for All
ANDOVER, Massachusetts – (April 1, 2013) – Straumann introduces a NEW implant line featuring an advanced combination of the award winning Roxolid® material and the SLActive® implant surface on all implant diameters with the NEW Loxim™ transfer piece for simplified handling.
Roxolid® for All with the Loxim™ transfer piece is designed to provide clinicians with confidence in all cases, the flexibility of more treatment options, help increasing patient acceptance of implant treatment, improved osseointegration properties1 and efficient implant placement through simplified handling.
Andy Molnar, Executive Vice President, North America commented, “At Straumann, we are working on multiple initiatives that will help shape the future of dentistry and Roxolid for All is just one. Roxolid for All combines two of our award winning technologies with the simplified handling of the Loxim transfer piece to provide more treatment options. These benefits along with educated consumers can open the door to a larger number of patients who have not been able to receive – or have avoided – implant treatment. Straumann works with clinicians to open these doors and with the launch of Roxolid for All, doctors now have the option to treat patients with one implant diameter smaller than traditionally planned in some clinical situations and this may result in fewer and less invasive procedures, helping to increase the appeal of implant treatment. Today’s patient has a higher life expectancy and they want a tooth that will stand the test of time. We are committed to helping clinicians achieve this outcome. Straumann’s dedication to research allows us to provide impactful innovations that help clinicians improve the quality of care and life for patients.”
The Roxolid material and the SLActive surface technology each received the Frost & Sullivan Medical Device Technology of the Year Award. This award, which recognizes excellence in technological innovation, is one of the Best Practices Awards bestowed by Frost & Sullivan, the global growth consulting company. In 2005, the SLActive surface technology was noted as a ‘next generation dental implant surface technology’ and in 2009, the Roxolid material was noted as an ‘innovative high performance material for dental implants’.
Roxolid – the first Titanium Zirconium alloy designed specifically for implant dentistry – launched in 2009 and has been implemented in practices all around the country. Initially designed to offer more confidence when placing small diameter implants and to help increase patient acceptance of implant treatment, Roxolid Ø3.3 implants were just the beginning.
Roxolid for All expands to all diameters the advanced combination of the Roxolid material, the SLActive® surface technology and the NEW Loxim™ transfer piece for simplified implant handling. Loxim is a pre-mounted, self-retained transfer piece that offers clockwise and counter-clockwise rotations for one step implant insertion. With Loxim, the holding key is no longer required to remove the transfer piece, helping to make implant placement more efficient. Straumann designs implants with the restorative doctor in mind, as such, the Roxolid for All implants are compatible with all existing Straumann prosthetic options and instrumentation.
“The number of innovations Straumann has produced continues to grow and Roxolid for All expands treatment options even further. Doctors can now offer implant therapy to patients who were not previously inclined to consider implant therapy. This is a big opportunity for the surgeon, the restorative doctor and orthodontists. Straumann values the long standing trust of customers, working with clinicians to help grow their practices through a variety of channels. Straumann stands behind more than just their products. Straumann stands behind their customers,” said Gino Desimone, Vice President, Dental Division, US.
Straumann® – a global leader in implant dentistry offering surgical, restorative, regenerative, and digital solutions for the dental and lab business – is a pioneer of innovative technologies. We are committed to Simply Doing MoreSM for dental professionals and patients. With world-class customer service, highly skilled technical support, and a team of experienced professionals readily available to you, our vision is to be the commercial partner of choice in implant, restorative, and regenerative dentistry.

Materialise Dental - Faster and smoother guide delivery leads to better customer experience
What would improve your guided surgery experience? Faster guide delivery? SimPlant® case follow-up directly from your smartphone or tablet?
Recent improvements in Materialise Dental’s internal processes have led to an even more customer-oriented service which customers will undoubtedly appreciate.
Through technological developments and leaner production principles Materialise Dental has made the design and production of guides faster.
“Another way we have created a faster service is to use the time difference between continents to our advantage. For example, US designers can work on a European order while the customer is sleeping,” says Nico Roose, Director of Production at Materialise Dental.
Speedier and smoother serviceSo how much faster is our service? Production time for SurgiGuide® has now been reduced from seven to four working days.
“Creating a better customer experience is the key benefit of these improvements,” explains Nico Roose. “We are now able to manage customer expectations more easily, quickly and smoothly through our enhanced guide design review.”
Design serviceMaterialise Dental has now put a pro-active SurgiGuide® follow-up protocol in place that checks for technical issues and sends a new working design proposal with photos to the clinician to review and approve. Clinical testing has shown that in the majority of all cases, the design proposal is accepted so the clinician no longer must wait, call or email to re-plan or re-order cases, thereby saving time.
Approve SimPlant® cases and track status from anywhere in the worldAnd the approval process has gotten even simpler, faster and friendlier. A new mobile approval option is now available. Clinicians can login from their iPhone or iPad, or any other smartphone or tablet and will be automatically connected to a website which gives an overview of the status of all their cases. They can follow-up, review and approve cases wherever they are.
“All these improvements were developed with the customer in mind,” adds Nico Roose. “We believe improvements to our processes smoothen the guided surgery process and lead to a better customer experience overall.”
