Video description of the drilling protocol

IMPORTANT! To correctly install Uniqa Dental implants, it is necessary to follow the socket preparation protocol.

The video shows the steps that need to be taken to install a 3.3 mm diameter implant into a D4 density soft bone. First, a socket must be made 1-2 mm deep in the hardest cortical layer of the bone using a special cortical bone drill. Then, a pilot drill with a diameter of 2 mm should be used to drill the socket to the full depth, which is typically up to 10 mm. The recommended rotational speed is 1000 rpm, and the maximum is 1200 rpm. Moderate pressure should be applied when drilling to avoid resistance from the bone and to ensure intensive irrigation for cooling the drill and bone.

Next, a 2.5 mm diameter drill should be used to drill halfway through the socket. A 2.8 mm diameter drill can help drill a quarter of the socket depth. If resistance is encountered during the process, the drill may need to be replaced as it may have become dull.

It is important not to drill without water, as this can lead to bone overheating and thermal necrosis of the bone tissue after the implant is installed. After this, the implant should be installed into the socket. The aggressive thread profile of Uniqa Dental implants allows it to be screwed directly into the bone tissue and provide good primary stability. The maximum permissible torque when installing the implant is 50 N*cm. It is important to carefully follow the instructions provided.
