Implant Direct™ DRILLS

Legacy™ (I, II, III)

Fig. 1

Legacy™ implant drills are externally cooled, latch type drills and may be used up to 35 times. All drills are laser etched on the shaft with the catalog number of the drill and on the hub with the diameter of the drill in millimeters. Two types of drills are utilized to create a appropriately sized osteotomy.

Twist drills shape the osteotomy diameter and depth, regardless of parallel or tapered wall implants. Two drill lengths are offered with depth ranges of 6-10mm and 6-16mm (Fig.1). Depth markings

Fig. 2

of 6.0, 8.0, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm are laser etched on the cutting portion of the drills. Each twist drill has a stepped design to facilitate a effortless transition from one diameter drill to the next larger diameter drill. Eight different drill diameters (Fig.2, 2.3, 2.8, 3.4, 3.8, 4.4, 4.8, 5.1, 5.4mm) comprise the twist drill selection for Legacy™ tapered and parallel walled implants. The V-Factor of the drills is up to 1.0mm, creating a osteotomy depth up to 1.0mm deeper than indicated by the depth markings on the drills.

Bone contouring drills (Fig.3) are implant diameter specific and utilized in type D1 bone or in situations with a thick cortical plate of bone to accommodate the crestal portion of the implant. Following the recommended drill protocol and depth markings on the drills will result in a implant position flush with the crest of the bone.
Drill sequence

ReActive®, RePlus®

ReActive® and RePlus® implants employ the same drills as Legacy™ and Spectra-System® implants albeit with a different drill sequence.

RePlant®

Fig. 4

RePlant® implant drills are externally cooled, latch type drills and may be used up to 35 times. All drills are laser etched on the shaft with the catalog number of the drill and on the hub with the diameter of the drill in millimeters. Three types of drills are utilized to create a appropriately sized osteotomy.

Soft bone drills shape the osteotomy diameter and depth. Two drill lengths are offered with depth ranges of 6-10mm

Fig. 5

and 6-16mm (Fig.4). Depth markings of 6.0, 8.0, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm are laser etched on the cutting portion of the drills. Each twist drill has a stepped design to facilitate a effortless transition from one diameter drill to the next larger diameter drill. Four different drill diameters (Fig.5, 2.8, 3.4, 4.2, 5.1mm) comprise the twist drill selection for RePlant® implants. The V-Factor of the drills is up to 1.0mm, creating a osteotomy depth up to 1.0mm deeper than indicated by the depth markings on the drills.

Bone contouring drills (Fig.6) are implant diameter specific and utilized in type D1 bone or in situations with a thick cortical plate of bone to accommodate the crestal portion of the implant. Following the recommended drill protocol and depth markings on the drills will result in a implant position flush with the crest of the bone.

SwishPlant™ (SwissPlant™)

Fig. 7

SwishPlant™ implant drills are externally cooled, latch type drills and may be used up to 35 times. All drills are laser etched on the shaft with the catalog number of the drill and on the hub with the diameter of the drill in millimeters. Two types of drills are utilized to create a appropriately sized osteotomy.

Twist drills shape the osteotomy diameter and depth, regardless of parallel or tapered wall implants. Two drill lengths

are offered with depth ranges of 6-10mm and 6-16mm (Fig.7). Depth markings of 6.0, 8.0, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm are laser etched on the cutting portion of the drills. Four different drill diameters (Fig.8, 2.3, 2.8, 3.5, 4.2, 5.1mm) comprise the twist drill selection for SwishPlant™ implants. The V-Factor of the drills is up to 1.0mm, creating a osteotomy depth up to 1.0mm deeper than indicated by the depth markings on the drills.

Fig. 9

Countersink drills (Fig.9) are implant diameter specific and utilized in type D1 bone or in situations with a thick cortical plate of bone to accommodate the crestal portion of the implant. Implants can either be placed tissue level or bone level depending on the insertion depth of the countersink drill.

Spectra-System® (ScrewPlant®, ScrewPlus®, ScrewDirect®, ScrewRedirect™ , Screwindirect®, GoDirect™) implant drills are externally cooled, latch type drills and may be used up to 35 times. All drills are laser etched on the shaft with the catalog number of the drill and on the hub with the diameter of the drill in millimeters. Two types of drills are utilized to create a appropriately sized osteotomy.

Twist drills shape the osteotomy diameter and depth, regardless of parallel or tapered wall implants. Two drill lengths

are offered with depth ranges of 6-10mm and 6-16mm (Fig.10). Depth markings of 6.0, 8.0, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm are laser etched on the cutting portion of the drills. Each twist drill has a stepped design to facilitate a effortless transition from one diameter drill to the next larger diameter drill. Eight different drill diameters (Fig.11, 2.3, 2.8, 3.4, 3.8, 4.4, 4.8, 5.1, 5.4mm) comprise the twist drill selection for Spectra-System® tapered and parallel walled implants. The V-Factor of the drills is up to 1.0mm, creating a osteotomy depth up to 1.0mm deeper than indicated by the depth markings on the drills.
