Dental implants play a crucial role for oral rehabilitation. However, their survival may be jeopardized by the occurrence of mechanical and/or biological complications. One such biological complication is peri-implantitis. Every peri-implantitis case has bone loss associated with it; in the worst case, the dental implant may be lost. This potentially results in patient discomfort, damage to the clinician’s reputation and loss of time and money.
TiBrush™ offers the clinician the following benefits:
TiBrush™ is made of titanium bristles with a stainless steel shaft. It is delivered sterile and is for single patient use only.

3 More efficient and effective – Cleaning efficiency on contaminated titanium discs (F. Schwarz, data on file P1.245-008V), in-vitro study
For optimal results TiBrush™ should be used with an oscillating handpiece (vs. rotating handpiece).
A handpiece with an effective twist operating angle of ±30° should be used at 900 oscillations per minute. Below are models we have evaluated. Please note that there may be suitable handpieces from other manufacturers which we have not evaluated.
