Zimmer® DRILLS

Tapered Screw-Vent® (TSV)

Fig. 1

Multi use drills (Driva™) are internally cooled, latch type drills made from stainless steel. Each drill is color coded for easy implant diameter sequence identification and the drill diameter is etched on to each drill in addition to the color coding. Multi use drills may be used up to XX times. Special Driva™ drills for guided surgery are marked with a black stripe along the long axis of the drill shaft.

Fig. 2

Plain twist drills are available in two drill depth lengths of 11mm (Fig.2) and 17mm (Fig.3) in five osteotomy diameters of 2.3, 2.8, 3.4, 3.8 and 5.1mm. Step twist drills are machined with a smaller diameter at the tip of the drill than the main portion of the drill to make the transition from one drill diameter to the next in the drill sequence less challenging. Plain and stepped twist drills are combined in the drill protocol to achieve the desired osteotomy diameter.

Fig. 3

Stepped twist drills are produced in five main osteotomy diameters of 2.8/2.4, 3.4/2.8, 3.8/3.4, 4.4/3.8 and 5.7/5.1mm. The smaller number in the number sequence indicates the diameter of the smaller drill tip and the larger number indicates the main drill diameter. Depth markings on the 11mm drills denote depths of 8mm and 10mm (Fig.1, left) while 17mm drills are marked at 8, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm (Fig.1, right). Although the V-Factor of the drills will create a osteotomy depth 1mm deeper than implied.

Fig. 4

Bone taps for dense bone types (D1, D2) may be operated with a surgical ratchet or a 2.5mm hex driver and a surgical motor. Four diameters (Fig.4) of 3.7, 4.1, 4.7 and 6.0 are produced for Tapered Screw-Vent® (TSV) and Screw-Vent® implants by Zimmer®. Tap drills are not color coded or marked otherwise for diameter identification. A black band above the thread cutting portion of the drill indicates the recommended insertion depth. The bottom of the marker is intended for 8, 10 and 11.5mm length implants and the top of the black marker indicates the insertion depth for 13 and 16mm implants.

Single patient use drills (Fig.5) are externally cooled, latch type drills offered as a starter kit (3.0mm round drill, 2.3mm pilot drill, 3.4/3.8mm step drill) and single item stepped drills. The single item stepped drills are machined in diameters of 4.4/3.8 and 5.7/5.1mm. The smaller number in the number sequence indicates the diameter of the smaller drill tip and the larger number indicates the main drill diameter. Starter drill kit drills and single item step drills are produced in two osteotomy depth versions of 11mm and 17mm. Depth markings on the 11mm drills denote depths of 8mm and 10mm while 17mm drills are marked at 8, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm. Although the V-Factor of the drills will create a osteotomy depth 1mm deeper than implied.

Screw-Vent

Multi use drills (Driva™) are internally cooled, latch type drills made from stainless steel. Each drill is color coded for easy implant diameter sequence identification.

Twist drills are available in two drill depth lengths of 11mm and 17mm in four osteotomy diameters of 2.3, 2.8, 3.8 and 4.2mm. Depth markings on the 11mm drills denote depths of 8mm and 10mm while 17mm drills are marked at 8, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm. Although the V-Factor of the drills will create a osteotomy depth 1mm deeper than implied.

Countersink drills are used as a intermediate drill after the initial 2.3mm pilot drill. These drills are final osteotomy depth specific and are offered in four lengths of 9, 11, 14 and 17mm to accommodate the four available implant lengths (8, 10 13, 16mm) of Screw-Vent® implants.

Bone tap drills for dense bone types (D1, D2) are offered for the ratchet with a square head design and as a latch type drill for a surgical motor. Each version is produced in diameters of 3.3, 3.7 and 4.7mm. No color coding is evident on the bone tap drills for diameter identification.

Zimmer® One-Piece

Multi use drills (Driva™) are internally cooled, latch type drills made from stainless steel.

The titanium nitrate anodized pilot drill has a tapered design with a drill tip diameter of 1.6mm and widening to 2.1mm at the hub of the drill.

Twits drills are available in one drill depth lengths of 17mm in five osteotomy diameters of 2.3, 2.8 and 3.8mm. Step twist drills are machined with a smaller diameter at the tip of the drill than the main portion of the drill to make the transition from one drill diameter to the next in the drill sequence effortless. These drills are produced in three main osteotomy diameters of 2.8/2.4, 3.4/2.8 and 4.4/3.8mm. The smaller number in the number sequence indicates the diameter of the smaller drill tip and the larger number indicates the main drill diameter. Depth markings on the 17mm drills are marked at 8, 10, 11.5, 13 and 16mm. Although the V-Factor of the drills will create a osteotomy depth 1mm deeper than implied.

Bone tap drills for dense bone types (D1, D2) are operated with a surgical ratchet and not with a surgical motor. Three diameters of 3.0, 3.7 and 4.7mm are produced for One-Piece implants by Zimmer®. Tap drills are color coded for diameter identification blue (3.0mm), orange (3.7mm) and red (4.7mm).
