Ideas. Made in Bietigheim-Bissingen.
From the suction system that for the first time enabled the ergonomic treatment of patients lying down to the world’s first X-ray development device for use in dental surgeries: Dürr Dental has continued to show how ideas are turned into successful products.
Our philosophy of always trying to shape the future rather than following trends soon gave wings to our aspiration to be an innovation leader in the branch of medical engineering. More than one hundred of our employees in Bietigheim-Bissingen work in research and development. And technology transfer has always been our strength. Our system solutions for digital X-rays are not used just in dentistry; they are also used to check gas pipelines and plane turbines.
Whether it’s compressed air, suction, or conservative dentistry, our “Equipment” division is characterized by innovative products. As far back as 1965, we developed the first completely oil-free compressor for use in dentistry; today, this approach is standard. For more than fifty years now, our suction system has been enabling the ergonomic treatment of patients whilst they are lying down. And thanks to our ultrasonic instruments for treating periodontitis, today’s patients benefit from low-pain periodontitis treatment.
In 1968, we were able to get the world’s first fully automatic X-ray development device for use in surgeries ready for the market. Today, we’re digitalizing the taking of X-rays with the highest possible level of innovation for image plate and sensor technology. Thanks to intraoral camera technology and fluorescence procedures, there is no need to use the hand mirrors of the past.
Dürr Dental is also among the market leaders when it comes to protection against infection and to disinfection and cleaning. With Dürr System Hygiene, we’re setting new standards for surgeries and laboratories. Easy, safe, and cost-effective: Our contact-free sensor-operated dispensers guarantee perfect protection from infection.
