Type of incision and anaesthesia.
After administering peripheral infiltration anaesthesic, a crestal incision is carried out to ensure adaptation of the flaps after the operation. The remaining median tissue bridge also reduces the risk of dehiscence.
Smoothing the bone.
Expose the interforaminal alveolar ridge of the mandible and level it if necessary. If required, plane the bone with the internally irrigated round bur.
Creating a purchase point and pilot site.
Place the drilling template in position and use a twist drill (option: Lindemann drill) to mark the implant position on the bone. The pilot site prepared with the twist drill establishes the axial alignment of the implant. This procedure requires that the implants be aligned with their axes as parallel as possible. A drilling template with titanium guide tube may help guide the drill.
