The surgical drills are made of high quality stainless steel material and are all externally irrigated. The recommended drilling speed is 450 – 800 rpm. Slower drilling speeds are recommended with softer bone and larger drill diameters. Laser etched markings on the drill shank provide clear labeling of the drill’s reference number and diameter (Ø). Drills are compatible with standard latch-type dental handpieces. Depth marks are standardized on all drills regardless of drill length or diameter. The marks are as follows:
• 7.5 mm line
• 9.0 mm – 11.0 mm band
• 13.0 mm – 15.0 mm band
The drills have a slight taper at their tip that corresponds to the apical diameter of implant body. This allows for simpliﬁed sequential oseteotomies and improved preparation of the implant recipient site.
