After mobilization of the  mucoperiosteal flap sharp bone crests are lightly smoothed with the internally irrigated round drill.

The direction of the implant is defined with the twist drill.

The top edge of the ring markings indicates the implant lengths. The Tri-Spade drill A is always used first. When placing B, C or D-implants the hole is expanded in ascending order.

(motorized or manual)
The conical reamer is inserted into the drilled hole and preparation is started with clockwise rotation without high pressure.

Round drills and twist drills are operated at 800 rpm (revolutions per minute).

For motorized operation the maximum speed is 15 rpm, the maximum torque 60 Ncm.
