Drill Driver Instructions and Sterilization

How to position a drill into the Drill Driver:

  • Take the Drill Driver and loosen the sleeve by turning counter clockwise as needed (refer to note1).
  • Insert the drill into the Drill Driver and as it is going in, start turning the drill until you hear a snap. That sound will determine that the drill is seated in its final position. Seat the Drill in its final position to prevent damage to the latch.  (refer to note2).
  • Now, tighten the sleeve to secure the drill in place by turning the sleeve clockwise.

*Do not tighten the sleeve without a drill in place as it may cause impairment of function.

 *High levels of torque will cause damage to the latch of the expanders.



*High levels of torque when manipulating the bone goes against biological principles. In some cases it may cause bone damage.

A. Extractions and Immediate Implant Placement

B. Edentulous Areas

  • On immediate extractions and implant placement, use your standard protocol and guidelines established for the particular procedure.
  • Use the surgical guide and begin the Osteotomy using the pilot driver.
  • Once confirmed that placing an implant immediately after and extraction is possible, start by using the pilot drill (refer to note3) palatal to the apical area of the extracted tooth (follow protocol*).
  • Make sure you observe establish protocol* and guidelines for the procedure, including surgical stent, CT scans, etc.


3. Advance the drill apically with controlled light pressure (refer to note3) until there is a sensation that bone is giving away under the drill.

4. Simultaneously, turn the drill clockwise and continue to advance apically.

5. Repeat until the pre-determined length is reached. At this time, make sure that the marketing in the Drill Driver is facing towards you. This will help reposition the drill into the Drill Driver (refer to note2).

6. Once length has been achieved, loosen the sleeve turning counter clockwise and remove the Driver leaving the drill in the bone to be used as a guide pin for x-ray verification. Take an x-ray using the drill to confirm proper angulation of the osteotomy (refer to note5).

7. After confirming proper angulation, place the drill into the Drill Driver and secure it by turning the sleeve clockwise then, begin retrieving the drill from the site by turning clockwise coronally until the drill has been retrieved from the osteotomy site.

8. At this point, save the harvested bone from the flutes of the implant drill in a sterile container for grafting material.

9. Continue the same steps with the second, third and fourth drill as you increase the diameter of the Osteotomy as necessary depending on the width of the implant. If bone tapping is required, attach the bone tap to the Drill Driver and use it accordingly.

10. After completion of the osteotomy, attach the insertion tool into the Drill Driver to pick up the Implant from the vile then use the Driver to deliver the implant to the surgical site.(refer to note4).

*Insertion tool is in your Implant Surgical Kit.

*High levels of torque can cause damage to the latch and the bone.


Note1: The Drill Driver contains an arrow indicating how to open.

Note2: The flat surface of the shank of the drill should align with the marking provided on the Drill Driver.

Note3: When applying apical pressure with the Drill Driver, you should observe same precautions as you would with elevators, periotomes, root tip elevators,and luxators.

Note4: When delivering an implant into the surgical site with the Drill Driver, the final torquing of the implant should be done with the instrument provided in your implant surgical kit.

Note5: Make sure the drill is tight in the osteotomy before you take the x-ray, if not use Guide pins provided in your surgical kit.






Cleaning and Care Instructions


Fundamental Details:

All instruments are to be cleaned, disinfected, and sterilized prior to each use. In addition, cleaning, disinfection and sterilization is also required prior to the first use of non-sterile instruments after removal from the protective packaging. Effective cleaning and disinfection is an indispensable requirement for proper instruments sterilization. The user is responsible for the sterility of the instruments. Therefore, please ensure that only validated procedures are used for cleaning, disinfection and sterilization.


Consider that the disinfectant used in the pre-treatment step serves only for personal safety and cannot replace the sterilization step, which should be performed later.

  1. Completely disassemble the instrument.
  2. Remove any visible debris from the instruments and surgical kit using a soft bristle brush and a broad spectrum cleaning or disinfecting agent such as Hu-Friedy’s Enzymax or equivalent. Rinse thoroughly.
  3. Place the instruments in a beaker of the same solution and sonicate for 10 minutes and make sure that the instruments are sufficiently immersed.
  4. Rinse instruments with isopropyl alcohol to remove any soap residue and minerals (*important to help prevent corrosion).
  5. Blot instruments with a lint-free towel and allow them to air dry completely.
  6. *Optional: Immerse instruments in surgical milk for 30 seconds. Then with a lint-free towel blot instruments and air dry completely.
  7. Wash the empty tray using the same solution. Rinse the tray with water and dry thoroughly.
  8. Return instruments to the appropriate location in the surgical tray. *Keep driver disassemble inside surgical tray for sterilization.
  9. Wrapping the kit in a standard approved sterilization wrap, use one of three qualified steam sterilization cycles:

                     a.  Prevacuum Steam: 132º C (270 ºF) for five minutes minimum.

                     b.  Gravity Steam: 132 ºC (270 ºF) for thirty minutes minimum.

                     c.  Gravity Steam: 121 ºC (250 ºF) for sixty minutes minimum.

                                  Dry for 20 – 50 minutes.


  • Assemble disassembled instruments if necessary.
  • Light corrosion on the surface can be removed with Hu-Friedy Penetration Oil (IPS). If the corrosion cannot be completely eliminated, the instruments should be removed from use. Otherwise such corrosion could damage other instruments. After treating an instrument with IPS, the instrument must be cleaned and sterilized once more.
  • Hinged instruments have to be lubricated with a lubricant suitable for steam sterilization, like Hu-Friedy Instrument Lubricant Spray (ILS) or in case of dry heat sterilization, Hu-Friedy High Heat Instrument Lubricant (ILHH).


Note about Stainless Steel Instruments:


Stainless steel should not be exposed to the following chemicals: Sodium Hypochlorite (household bleach), Tartaric Acid (stain and tartar remover), Aluminum Chloride, Barium Chloride, Bichloride of Mercury, Calcium  Chloride, Carbolic Acid, Chlorinated Lime, Citric Acid, Dakin’s Solution, Ferrous Chloride, Lysol, Mercuric Chloride, Mercury Salts, Phenol, Potassium Permanganate, Potassium Thiocyanate or Stannous Chloride, Aqua Regia, Ferric Chloride, Sulfuric Acid, Hydrochloric Acid or Iodine



Failure to completely dry surgical instruments during autoclaving can leave moisture and cause discoloration and oxidation.          

The use of hydrogen peroxide or other oxidizing agents will damage the surface of instruments.

Periodic testing, cleaning, and calibration of autoclave equipment is recommended to ensure the unit remains in proper working order.

Surgical tips should be replaced when wear is noticed, such as a decrease in cutting efficiency or when signs of discoloration appear.
