The new OsseoCare Pro surgical drill motor from Nobel Biocare is controlled via an iPad with a custom App that provides a simple user interface for setting up and saving custom surgical sequences.
The iPad App allows users to control the speed, torque, irrigation flow and light intensity, automatically saves procedures and allows for multiple logins so multiple clinicians can have unique preferences. The App also features pre-set programs for free hand and guided dental implant surgeries. The App will be updated regularly to provide new protocols and system enhancements, according to a press release from Nobel Biocare.
The OsseoCare system features a MX-i LED micromotor and a contra-angle handpiece with a small head for increased access to tight intraoral spaces. The handpieces features a double LED lighting system as well as internal and external irrigation.

Nobel Biocare launches innovative iPad®-operated drill motor and highlights new clinical data displaying implant efficacy
Following the company’s mission, “Designing for Life,” Nobel Biocare continues its focus on helping dental professionals to treat more patients with superior solutions. At the 21st Annual Scientific Congress of the European Association of Osseointegration (EAO) in Copenhagen, Denmark, Nobel Biocare presents its latest product innovations, extensive clinical expertise and knowledge-building programs to support dental professionals in their patient treatment. For each step of the patient treatment flow – from diagnosis and treatment planning to surgery and finally prosthetic restoration – Nobel Biocare provides leading products and solutions to ensure maximum treatment safety, patient comfort and long-term success.
Launch of new iPad®-operated OsseoCare™ Pro drill motor for more treatment efficiency and safety
Keeping continuous improvement of treatment flow effectiveness and patient safety at the forefront, Nobel Biocare has now enhanced its surgical product line by launching the next generation drill motor, OsseoCare Pro. Much more than a drill motor, the new OsseoCare Pro is the first drill motor to be operated by an iPad®. Its intuitive user interface offers unique handling features providing clinicians and their patients with the highest treatment efficiency and security.
Available free of charge from the Apple® App Store, the OsseoCare Pro application delivers highly user-friendly operations during surgery and opens up numerous avenues in terms of customization options. For better planning and increased treatment safety, the intuitive iPad® interface makes it possible to plan and set up the treatment sequence prior to surgery. Pre-programmed free-hand and guided drilling protocols provide additional increased safety features. The speed, torque, irrigation flow and light intensity can be controlled and modified through the application which also offers a built-in recording and exporting function. Additionally, the app allows multiple-user log-ins for sharing treatment data between different clinical partners.
New features and functions will be added to the app and will be updated regularly to provide users with improvements as well as enhancing the performance of the system. In addition to the innovative iPad® interface, the MX-i LED micromotor is the lightest and most powerful on the market, while the contra-angle has an exceptionally small head for easy access in limited space areas. The contra-angle is equipped with a double LED system that ensures ample and stable lighting during surgery while the combination of internal and external irrigation ensures optimal cooling. The OsseoCare Pro is on sale now.
