The line markings represent different depth ranges of the drills:
Although the straight parallel drills and Multi-Drills™ are reusable, there are many factors that may affect wear on the drill (i.e. bone density and composition, the number of autoclave cycle exposures, handling during instrument cleaning, use of irrigation, drilling speed, etc.). Therefore, we recommend replacing the drills after 20 uses, but you may always opt to replace them sooner. Note that it is critical to have sharp cutting drills when creating an osteotomy so that the bone does not overheat. If a drill is dull or does not cut, it should be disposed of and replaced with a new drill. Sharp dental drills also make the preparation of the implant site easier and will help secure correct insertion of the implant.
Use our implant sizing guide below to accurately evaluate each case in determining which prosthetic to use:
With the OsteoReady® System, all implant diameters have one prosthetic connection of 3.75mm. This gives the clinician the opportunity to platform match or platform switch. With only one connection, the simplified prosthetic procedure is efficient and requires little inventory.
OsteoReady® recommends an implant torque range of 25-45Ncm.
