Background The purpose of our current study is to determine whether using a Magnetic Mallet during oral and implant surgical procedures is more effective than using traditional instruments with regard to complication rate, tissue healing, and surgical results (primary stability and crestal bone loss). According to a number of writers, a Magnetic Mallet can be utilized for implant insertion, ridge expansion, sinus lifts, tooth extractions, and implant site preparation.

So, this study was conducted to ascertain whether using a Magnetic Mallet Throughout the process of oral and surgical implant operations is effective and to assume on whether it might help prevent failures and implications.

Material and Methods:

In the current investigation, nine patients had twenty implants placed bilaterally in the posterior maxilla to compare the advanced osteotome technique (Magnetic Mallet) with the conventional drilling approach clinically and radiographically after loading. They were chosen from the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Oral and Dental Medicine, Future University in Egypt's outpatient clinics.

On one side, eight patients were recruited as study subjects, while on the other side, then they were recruited as control subjects. They were given one implant on the control side and one on the study side. The last patient had two implants on the control side and two on the research side.


It was noticed that Stability at baseline was significantly higher in the Magnetic Mallet (Study group) (71.77±2.71) than in the Conventional (Control group) (68.67±2.36) in our study.

When the amount of difference from baseline to 6 months was compared between groups, it was shown that the Magnetic Mallet (Study group) showed an increased gain in stability (6.21±1.78) than the Conventional (Control group) (4.49±0.9). Regarding marginal bone loss, there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups in the current investigation.

Conclusion: From the current study it was concluded that the usage of Magnetic Mallets is reported to offer better clinical benefits than the traditional instruments. Due to its safety, predictability, speed, and simplicity of use, it can be useful during dental and implant surgery procedures. The Magnetic Mallet improves implant stability compared to conventional drilling technique, but it doesn't reduce the amount of marginal bone loss around dental implants. The Magnetic Mallet is quick, precise, and effective in bone condensing and an appropriate tool for preparing implant bed in softer maxillary bone.
