Camlog™ and Conelog® DRILLS

Camlog™

Camlog™ implants and components are distributed through Henry Schein® in the USA.

SCREW-LINE™ implant drills are multi use (up to 20 times) latch type drills with a V-Factor of up to 0.6mm, creating a osteotomy 0.6mm deeper than indicated. Following the recommended drill protocol will place the installed implant 0.4mm above the crest of the bone. drills can be divided in to four groups starting with a pilot and pre drill followed by form drills, cortical form drills and bone taps. Camlog™ SCREW-LINE™ drills may be used for Conelog® SCREW-LINE™ implants as well.

Fig. 1

Hubed pilot drills (Fig.1, left) are internally cooled 2mm diameter drills with four depth markings at 9, 11, 13 and 16mm. The 9, 11 and 13mm depth markings are etched on to the drill while the 16mm depth limiter is created by the bottom of the hub. Depth stop bushings may be attached to the pilot drill to provide a physical depth limiter at 9, 11 and 13mm.
Hubed pre drills (Fig.1, right) are internally cooled and tapered from 1.7mm at the tip to 2.8mm at the hub of the drill. Depth markings are present at 9, 11, 13 and 16mm. The 16mm depth limiter is created by the bottom of the hub. Depth stop bushings may be attached to the pilot drill to provide a physical depth limiter at 9, 11 and 13mm.

Form drills (Fig.2) are externally cooled and machined with a four fluted cutting surface. Each implant length requires its own form drill. The drills are color coded (white 3.3, yellow 3.8, red 4.3, blue 5.0, green 6.0) to indicate the osteotomy diameter in addition of being inscribed with the drill diameter and length.

Fig. 3

Three depth markers (Fig.3, left) at the base of the drill are spaced 1mm apart and each depth marker is 0.4mm wide. A osteotomy depth drilled to the lower edge of the first depth mark will leave the implant 0.4mm above the crest of the bone. Increasing the depth to the upper edge of the depth mark will place the implant flush with the crest of the bone. Depth stop bushings (Fig.3, right) may be attached to the form drills to provide a physical depth limiter coinciding with the lower edge of the first depth marker. Bushings are color coded and drill diameter specific.

Cortical drills (Fig.4) are required in D1 bone to effect a proper osteotomy diameter. Five externally cooled drills, one for each implant diameter are produced for SCREW-LINE implants. Each drill is machined with four cutting flutes and depth markings at 9, 11, 13 and 16mm. Drills are color coded to indicate the corresponding implant diameter. A white ring signals the 3.3mm platform, yellow 3.8, red 4.3, blue 5.0 and green indicates a 6.0mm implant diameter.

Fig. 5

Bone taps (Fig.5) are recommended in D1 and D2 type bone. Each implant diameter requires its own tap drill. Tap drills are driven in to the osteotomy site with a surgical motor directly at 15 rpm or with the Camlog™ torque wrench. Although utilizing the torque wrench mandates the use of a tap drill adapter to connect the tap drill to the torque wrench. The limit for insertion of the tap drills is the upper edge of the cutting blade. Drills are color coded to indicate the corresponding implant diameter. A white ring signals the 3.3mm platform, yellow 3.8, red 4.3, blue 5.0 and green indicates a 6.0mm implant diameter.
