“The speaker was absolutely excellent during the Osseodensification Course. He was clear, precise, and communicated the information incredibly well. The instructions were awesome.”

Read about the successes of our Densah® Bur Technology

Cassio Orth, DDS, PhD

“The implementation of the Densah® Bur technology in my practice achieved more predictable results, reduced the use of biomaterials, decreased the number of surgical interventions to obtain the desired result and, therefore, facilitated the acceptance of patients to perform additional surgeries. It definitely changed the way I practice implant dentistry.”



Rod Gleave, DMD

“I bought the Versah® Densah® Burs after hearing about how phenomenal they were. I watched all the videos online and performed several sinus lift cases successfully using the burs but still wanted to hear it live. I am so glad I attended the live event. Dr Huwais is a wonderful teacher. Clear, concise presentation with great organized written materials to take home. The Densah Burs are revolutionary and need to be a part of any dental practice placing implants .”



David Rainero, DMD

“The Versah® Densah® Bur technique for vertical sinus lifts have been one of the most useful innovations for implant surgery in my practice. The Versah Densah Burs allow us to achieve predictable elevation of the sinus floor and excellent long term successful results”



Carl Runyon, DMD

“Anyone placing implants should have Versah® Densah® Burs in their armamentarium. Especially in difficult or compromised cases.”



Adam Marre, DDS, MD

“The Versah Densah Burs allow me to obtain consistent and predictable results while providing my patients with the best experience possible. “



Omran Bishbish, DDS

“Big thanks to Dr. Huwais and Versah team for the [University Hands-on] … No more tapping and no more hammering the patient’s head….This system gives great haptic feedback to the surgeon and makes sinus lifting and grafting easier and a more controlled procedure. After the training with Dr. Huwais, I discovered other applications for this system from bone expansion to GPR. I believe this is a great tool to have for any dentist who is performing implant surgery procedures.”

  Daniel C. Delrose, DDS, FICOI

 “I have been using Versah burs for over 5 years. That simple change has revolutionized   implant placement in my practice. It does not matter the implant manufacturer, you   always have sharp burs ready to go, and if the bone is D4, you can condense the bone   and get a very high BIC and RFA number.”

Paula Vargas, DDS

“I have been using the Densah Bur system for over 3 years and I totally recommend it! It is very easy to use and I have more versatility in my treatments since I can place more implants in places where it cannot be done with other systems. My implant cases have increased and I feel like I can’t do without it anymore.”


“Thank you Dr. Huwais and Versah Team for an outstanding course on October 16th! Everything was helpful! Would love more courses of this kind! One of the best instructors I ever had!”

James Shepler, DDS

“Thank you for [the] development of Osseodensification. It has been a massive quality shift on what I can accomplish for my patients, who also thank you! This technique has allowed me to be able to have consistent, quality results.”

Tarun Kumar, MDS

“Densah® burs are path-breaking in Implant osteotomy preparation. My Journey with Densah burs in the last four years has changed the way I practice Implantology. Now I cannot Imagine implant surgery without them. It is an all in one system which gives us predictable stability for Immediate loading and significant clinical versatility. Osseodensification has become part of our implant practice and our courses.”

Yazad Gandhi, BDS, MDS

“Stability is a precursor to predictability in immediate implant placement and the Densah burs provide superb stability with high ITV. […] these innovative designs deliver more than they promise.”

Marco Berardini, DDS

“I have carried out many clinical cases with the Densah® Burs and was immediately enthusiastic about them. I appreciated the versatility of use in every clinical situation. Thanks to the Densah® protocols, a ridge expansion technique, an immediate post extractive implant in multi-radicular tooth sites and sinus lift are now fast and predictable procedures. I believe that Densah® Burs represent a revolution in the approach to modern implantology”

Nick Shubin, DDS

“The Versah crestal approach for sinus augmentation is a game changer for patients and clinicians.
It gives a measure of safety for the patient and dependability to the clinician like never before.”

Jennifer Ahn, DMD

“Usage of the Densah® Burs in various situations has made my everyday surgery/implant placement much simpler and more predictable.”

Carrie Berkovich, DDS, MS

“I am able to do more one-stage surgeries in narrow ridges utilizing osseodensification principle for ridge expansion. Patients are thrilled to shorten their total treatment time, have less invasive surgery, and decrease risks of complications. It has also boosted the positive feedback and referrals from my restorative colleagues.

As I often say, Densah® Burs are the biggest little pearl I picked up for my practice in a decade.”

David A. Rice, DDS

“I use Astra Implants and the Versah Guided Surgery System to place two 3.5mm implants in a narrow ridge. The system was precise and with the aid of the guide I was able to center the osteotomies in the middle of the ridge. I love the open design that allows for visualization and irrigation.”

Tim Smith, DDS

“For my first sinus lift ever, I used Densah Burs after attending the course last month. We started with 5mm of bone height below the sinus so I used protocol #2 and just took my time step by step. It worked perfectly and I am so excited at how easy and smooth it went. We got a great result with a total lift of an additional 6.5 to 7mm into the sinus. Placed a 10mm implant but probably could have even placed an 11.5. Thank you for this innovative technique and for teaching it to me. I look forward to doing more of these in the future and hopefully attending more courses.”

Meredith Gantos, DDS, FAGD

Fantastic course! This information and skillset is an absolute necessity for anyone placing implants. The course was thorough, applicable, easy to understand, had a practical hands-on, and wonderful resource materials. The level of detail and organization was perfect. This is everything you’d want in a high-quality course!

Scott Lawson, DDS


“Thank you for inventing this product and protocol. it is a much-needed tool
for any implant dentist’s toolbox! I think the dental world is starting to
understand just how valuable it is for multiple applications.”

Abdusalam Alrmali, BDS, DDS imp. MDS

“The Densah® Burs completely changed my thinking and my clinical approach, especially
for complex cases.
Now the treatment is more simple, less invasive, predictable and
reproducible. For example, when dealing with sinus lifting cases with Osseodensification the
possibility of perforation is low because they displace the floor of sinus with the membrane like
a tent by autografting and compacting the bone up at the top. This revolution by Dr. Huwais
and his group is going to be an innovation in the implant field.

David Flamenco, DDS

“These burs are the perfect arsenal for limited ridge space during implant placement!”

Srikanth Cherukadu, DDS

“I wish I had known about Versah® from day one of my implant practice! I strongly recommend all my colleagues to use Versah for implant systems.”

Nilesh Salgar, DDS, Dip. ICOI

“Dr. Huwais is an excellent lecturer. Now I have a much deeper understanding and appreciation for the many abilities of the Densah® Bur System. Surgical implant cases that were complex are now made easy, safe, and predictable. Taking the course will greatly expand your implant education!”

Mike Glassman, DDS

“Densah® Burs have directly changed the way I do implantology! I probably
was the first South African to purchase and use your drills. Ever since, I have
found them to be absolutely magic. I have been through a number of sets since
starting out with them and I am really so appreciative that they were
introduced into the market.”

Howard Gluckman, DDS

“Osseodensification with the Densah® Burs have changed
my life. I can’t remember the last time I did a lateral window.
Less cost, less swelling, less post-op pain. It’s the best
invention in a long time.”

Roy Thompson, DDS

“You and your team did not disappoint! The lecture was enlightening, well planned, organized, and applicable. The timing all day allowed a relaxed learning environment. Thank you for your commitment to supported science in our profession and your dedication to teaching others a better and reproducible result in our surgical regimens.”

Jane Martone, DDS

“I have done several cases that would have been solely grafted areas but with Densah
Burs, they allowed me to place the implants at the same time with a tremendous
degree of stabilization.”

Aaron Prestup, DMD

“I’m always looking for a better way to place dental implants. Versah® has simplified
routine implant placement as well as the more technique sensitive procedures that I
perform in placing plants. A very clever leap forward for those of us that are involved
in implant placement.

Nicholas DiMauro, DDS

“With the Versah Osseodensification system, I am consistently getting ISQ readings above 72 in D4 and D5 bone. The Versah guided surgery system is so easy to use and keeps the area well irrigated. I am able to scan theimplant on placement and have the prosthesis ready so much sooner. The patients love that.”

Stephen Ho, DDS

“It’s the best one-day hands-on training course that I have been to. I really recommend attending a course to learn how to use the Burs to their full potential. It was full of new ideas that I can take home and utilize. The Versah Burs have definitely improved the way I approach my implant treatment planning and placement.”

Thomas Brown, DDS

“The course was an excellent experience in presenting the concept of Osseodensification. The applications of this technique are simply huge in the effort of preserving bone, ridge expansion, and trans-alveolar sinus lift. I have become a better surgeon by incorporating these techniques into the implant component of my practice.”

Michael Laraway, DDS

“I am amazed at the initial stability I am seeing. The vertical sinus lift protocol with Densah® Burs gives you great results. Thank you!”

Daniel Wilson, DMD

“Fantastic!! I did my first Densah® Bur case on numbers 3 and 14 two days ago. They were crestal sinus lifts and they went amazingly well. The videos online were superb and helped the case go super smoothly.”

Carlos Letelier, MD, DMD, DDS

“The Osseodensification burs have provided an excellent tool in my practice. I currently use them for all implant site preparations.”

Giulio Spagnuolo, DDS

“I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who practices implant placement! An extraordinary opportunity.”

Datta Malyavantham, BDS DDS FICOI

“It’s the best in the class for bone manipulation, ridge expansion and sinus lift! Great job in creating this product.”

Nicholas Brown, DDS

“Densah® Bur Technology is so simple, yet so effective! Anyone that places implants owes it to themselves to have Densah® burs in their armamentarium.”

Scott Bobbitt, DMD

“Thanks for the Densah® Burs—they are invaluable! They have been a delightful, unexpected and productive blessing. The Densah® Bur Kit has more than paid for itself in the first month of use. I’ve rarely been this pleased with an innovative product like yours. Every time it’s put to use, it’s exciting—it reminds me why I chose this profession in the first place.”

David Long, DDS

“I want to first extend my sincerest thanks for Dr. Huwais for providing an incredible course for our program. I think I can speak on behalf of my co-residents and say that it was one of the best hands-on lectures we have received since we started the program.”

Cory Wanatick, DDS

“The Osseodensification course had the perfect blend of science, clinical information and hands-on training! I would highly recommend this paradigm shift to my colleagues.”

Jay Lopez, DDS

“My ‘Go-To’ instruments for implant placement! Goodbye osteotomes for intraosseous sinus lifts, goodbye osteotomes for Osseodensification, and goodbye to my ridge splitting and ridge expansion armamentarium… It’s a good day for the implant surgeon!”

Kevin Neshat, DDS

“I am absolutely ecstatic about these drills. I place around 1,100 implants per year and I honestly can’t say that I have enjoyed anything more than using your drills to do my vertical sinus augmentations.”

Jeffrey C. Olson, DDS

“First time I used the Densah Burs I placed a #7 site of deficient bone volume – could not have done
the procedure without Versah!”

Armin Konnert, DDS

“This is really a game changer in my practice. I can do “magic” immediately without any additional machine, technique, or material. It couldn’t be more simple and effective. I’ve been using the Densah Burs for 4 months now and it has replaced a lot of other “stuff” and saved hours of treatment time.”

Ryan Conkle, DDS
General Dentist

“I received my associate fellow credential in San Diego and was very moved by Dr. Huwais’ acceptance speech at the AAID Presidents Dinner. I went home and researched Dr. Huwais, and after two weeks of watching every single speaker from the Osseodensification World Symposium, I ordered and used the Versah Drills. WOW!! First sinus lift case went exactly like you said, no issues and I am hooked. As Dr. Mazor says, Dr. Huwais is a genius. Thank you for this awesome tool and all of your work. This will change all of our clinical lives for the better. This product is making a difference.”

Amy Yeung, DDS

“I tried the Densah Burs for a lower premolar site which was slightly narrow and the burs worked amazing to expand the ridge. Thanks again for an amazing product. I cant wait to use it for other clinical scenarios.”

Katherine Schacherl, DDS
General Dentist

“The use of Densah Burs and the Osseodensification technique allowed for a minimally invasive approach to simultaneous sinus augmentation and implant placement. Prior to the Densah Burs, this patient would have required a more invasive surgery. The ease of use and haptic feedback of the Densah Burs resulted in enhanced control and safety which was especially important during this case as there was only 2.3mm of bone to the sinus floor.”

 Curtis J. Perry, DDS

“…the Densah Burs feel super safe to use. They don’t jump which is real important, especially for immediate implants and narrow ridges.”

 Christopher Chin, DMD

“Really love the change in paradigm to saving bone!”

 Ahmad Hawasli, DDS, MSc

“It is an amazing tool for implant site preparation. It becomes easier now to place an implant in a narrow ridge with Densah Burs. Thank you Versah!”

 Daniel P. Camm, DDS

“I have been practicing Implant Dentistry since 1987. These burs are one of the most innovative ideas I have ever seen developed in Implant Dentistry.”

 Ruben Ovadia, DDS

“The most revolutionary and advanced method that I have incorporated in my practice for implant dentistry. Thank you!”

John M. Wise, DDS, MS

“Developed my practice – I can accomplish implant placement in a much more predictable fashion!”

Emil_Portrait-LRLawrence Gelb, DDS

I used the Densah Burs in the placement of an implant into a narrow ridge in the #7 site. They worked like a charm. The procedure was effortless and totally devoid of the stress we all experience when placing an implant into a narrow ridge in the aesthetic zone. And of course bone grafting was not needed as the Densah Burs left me with an osteotomy having dense internal walls and adequate thickness of buccal and palatal bone.

Emil_Portrait-LREmil Verban, Jr. DDS

“I have found the Densah Burs to be better than advertised.  I place three different brands of implants and have replaced the burs I have used in the past with Densah Burs.
From simple to complex cases, these burs have increased my initial stability as measured with the ISQ meter. I have found them to be “priceless” with my immediate placements.
The versatility of these burs allows me to customize each osteotomy based on the type of bone.  I can cut as well as preserve the bone with a simple change in the direction of my hand piece.  After the implementation of the Densah Burs to my protocol, I could never return to my standard drills and highly recommend these to all dentists placing implants.”

Portrait_Images_PruettMichael Pruett DMD

“We have actually adopted the Densah system for most implant placements in our AEGD/GPR program. We use it for all cases in both mandible and maxilla and not just special cases since we feel that the densah burs are more effective than the regular drills even in a conventional manner, and certainly they allow for more versatility when they are used in the reverse mode for osseodensification.

In our experience we are definitely getting better initial stability and have not had any “spinners” related to oversizing the osteotomy. We have done numerous sinus augmentations (crestal approach technique) with the burs and are getting very predictable results. The haptic feedback of the burs is allowing our residents to build confidence in placing implants in a much quicker time. In ridge expansion cases we have used bone dilators and spreaders prior to using the densah system. With the manual or rotary dilators, operator experience and strength were certainly factors in case success. Now we have leveled the playing field for our residents regardless of their strength and experience in that the densah burs are very effective expanders.”

Steven ReubelSteven Reubel DMD, MS

“The Densah Bur system is everything you said it was. I am thrilled with the fact I can save most of the bone in my surgical site with the ability to compress and enhance bone density and in some cases expand out the buccal plate with increased insertion torque necessary for final positioning. I have gotten excellent stability in marginal areas. I no longer use the traditional implant burs, so if you know of anyone needing traditional burs , I’ve got some for cheap.”

Bret Dyer DDS, MSBret Dyer DDS, MS

“We have enjoyed using the Densah burs. I have found that they are excellent for creating ridge expansion and immediate implant placement. This approach keeps the implant in contact with only native bone rather than graft.”

Isaac D. Tawil DDSIsaac Tawil DDS, MS

“After researching versah technology I finally gave these burs a try. My first case was a narrow ridge, a perfect indication for versah technology. Since then I’ve made densah burs my drilling choice for all indications. Whether it be for narrow ridges or standard drilling protocol, used in forward or reverse these are hands down the best burs I’ve used. They drill a perfect circle every time and out perform all of my current drilling systems. I was skeptical of osseodensification protocol but after seeing its results I have become a believer. Try them and they will make a believer out of you too.”

David Sarment DDS, MSDavid Sarment DDS, MS

“I have used the Densah Burs on probably 10 cases now. Although there is a little learning curve, It does feel natural and I like the idea of not seeing bone coming out any more. In fact, going back to the regular drills becomes too aggressive now. Thank you so much for such an ingenious invention. I am recommending it to everyone I know”

Steven Flinn DDS ​Steven Flinn DDS  David Mach DDS, PHD   David Mach DDS, PHD

“We met Dr. Huwais before he brought his implant bur system to market. We were able to see the procedures and results. We anxiously awaited the burs, and were not disappointed. Seldom does new technology create such a shift in procedure and technique, but the Densah burs do. We see no reason to ever go back to using our old surgical burs. Truly a huge improvement to osteotomy preparation and implant placement.”​

Michael Rivera DDSMichael Rivera DDS

“My first case was a very atrophic maxillary ridge; I know with experience that by using only conventional osteotomy drills there is a “butterfly” or movement of the bone in an upward or outward fashion resulting in possible bone dehiscence.  Utilizing the Densah burs resulted in placement of the dental implants in solid bone without any buccal bone loss. I realized that the reverse motion resulted in the conservation of the bony ridge and wanted to try in denser lower ridge.  The sites were a previously grafted site and an old extraction site adjacent to the graft.  The grafted site was relatively soft and the Densah burs performed beautifully in this “new” bone all in the condensing or reverse mode.  The adjacent socket was dense type I bone and narrower than the recently grafted site.  I did have to utilize the cutting mode to get to depth and utilized the condensing mode as the osteotomy gained size. Both sites allowed me to place the 4.3 mm implants with desired torque at placement. I have placed about a dozen implants utilizing the Densah burs in various bone situations and I am definitely a convert with this technology.  I’ve shown several colleagues and recommend the utilization in many implant situations and highly recommend its use. Thank you, I know I will be ordering another set of burs in the near future and I’m glad to have found your Densah Burs at the AAID meeting in Orlando.  I go to many dental meetings and once in a while a “new” implant tool appears as a must have; The Densah burs are one of those must haves.”

Rodrigo Neiva DDS, MSRodrigo Neiva DDS, MS

“Versah Osseodensification Burs eliminate the “guessing game” of implant primary stability. They are easy to use and provide predictable clinical results even in critical situations. New and experienced clinicians can benefit from this simplified and efficient osteotomy preparation protocol.”

Ann Marie Hofbauer DMDAnn Marie Hofbauer DMD

“I have used the VERSAH drills on several narrow ridges and was amazed more to see the buccal bone expand and condense before my very eyes. With conventional expansion the bone thins and is delicate whereas with this system the quality improves. Amazing! In these sites I place the implant at 50ncm then must hand torque them down to fully seat–solid beyond belief. I now routinely use these for all my implant cases and I have also found that post-operatively the patients experience less (actually NO) discomfort. The system is just not as traumatic for all involved! Thank you”
