MHRA safety alert: W&H foot controls

16 January 2018


The BDA is advising dentists that a MHRA safety alert has been issued in relation to the W&H foot control S-N1/S-N2 products.

The manufacturers have identified a potential malfunction of individual foot controls. Due to this potential malfunction, the affected products (foot control) must not be used for thread cutting and screwing in of implants until further notice.

A list of the serial numbers for the potentially affected foot controls are available here.

The manufactures are asking dentists with the identified equipment to contact them online and they will confirm if your equipment is affected and will contact you regarding further action.
