About the author

EMS Swiss Instruments Surgery MB4, MB5 and MB6 are diamondcoated cylindr ica l instr uments for secondary surgical preparation (MB4, MB5) and final osteotomy (MB6). A spiral design combined with innovative dual cooling makes these instruments unique in implant dentistry.

coNtrol savEs Effective instrument control fosters atraumatic implant preparation and minimizes any potential damage to the bone tissue.

(membranes, nerves, blood vessels, etc.). An optimum view of the operative site and minimal bleeding thanks to cavitation (hemostatic effect!) further enhance efficacy.

prEcisioN rEassurEs Selective cutting represents virtually no risk of damage to soft tissue

The new EMS Swiss Instruments Surgery stand for unequaled Swiss precision and innovation for the

benefit of dental practitioners and patients alike – the very philosophy embraced by EMS.
