Dentatus AB, located in Stockholm, Sweden, celebrated its 85th anniversary in 2015 and continues to provide distinctive products and service to the international dental community.
The Dentatus reputation was established in the 1930’s with its precision articulators, the preferred instrument at dental universities, and the first prefabricated endodontic Classic Post, considered the gold standard in clinical practice.
The unique reciprocating Profin® handpiece and its accompanying Lamineer® diamond tips has long been an instrument of choice for a broad range of applications, including cosmetic dentistry, hygiene, orthodontics, periodontics and CAD-CAM Dentistry.
In 1988, Bernard Weissman, businessman and noted inventor, acquired Dentatus AB, establishing the Dentatus USA, Ltd. division to provide direct service to the North and South American markets, and accelerating the development of specialized products and systems for finer dentistry.
In the early 1990’s, Dentatus introduced MTI™ the first Narrow-Body implant for temporary restorations. MTI solved the intolerable problems related with lengthy implant restorative intervals.
With the clinical validation of Narrow-Body Implants, Dentatus introduced the Atlas® implant for overdentures and the Anew® implant for crown and bridges. Both systems are FDA-approved for long term use. Universities have published data showing high bone adaptation and high survival rates of Dentatus implants with results on par with conventional implants.
