Video description of the drilling protocol

IMPORTANT: Before inserting UNIQA Dental implants, you should familiarize yourself with the protocol for properly preparing the site in readiness for implant placement.

To install Uniqa Dental implants, a protocol must be followed by an experienced dentist. If you plan to install a 5.0 mm diameter implant in D2-D3 bone density, you must first drill a hole in the hardest cortical bone layer using a special cortical bone drill. The thickness of the cortical layer in this type of bone can reach 1.5-2.2 mm. Then, use a 2 mm pilot drill with moderate force and intensive irrigation to cool the drill and the bone.

Next, use drills of increasing diameter in order to expand the hole to the required depth. First, expand the hole to full depth with a 2.5 mm diameter drill, then expand it to two-thirds of the depth with a 2.8 mm diameter drill, and then use a 3.2 mm drill to pass through half of the full depth of the hole. Then, expand the hole to half its diameter with a 3.65 mm drill. After that, take a 4.2 mm diameter drill and expand the hole to one-quarter of the depth of the hole.

During drilling, intensive irrigation with water should be provided to avoid overheating of the bone and thermal necrosis of the bone tissue after implant placement. After passing each drill, the hole should be thoroughly rinsed with an isotonic or saline solution to remove bone debris and lower the temperature in the bone.

After that, install the implant in the hole using the aggressive thread profile of Uniqa Dental implants to ensure good primary stability. The maximum allowable torque during implant placement is 50 N*cm. It is important to remember that incorrect implant placement can lead to various complications, including implant rejection, wound infection, and even damage to surrounding tissues.
