After uncovering the bone, the bone crest is smoothed and the cortical bone is beveled with the round drill.

The pilot hole is drilled with the XiVE D 2.0 twist drill. This is to define the direction of the implant.

The first expansion is drilled with the D 3.0 twist drill. If implants of diameter D 3.0 are being placed this will be the final drilling.

The D 3.4, D 3.8, D 4.5 and D 5.5 twist drills are used in ascending order until the implant site is prepared to the planned diameter.

XiVE round drill and all XiVE twist drills are operated intermittently at 800 rpm. Markers indicate the corresponding implant lengths.

(using the example of D 3.8) The final drilling uses the twist drill that matches the diameter of the planned implant.

In cancellous bone (D IV), the preparation is limited solely to the crestal bone section. The preparation depth with the crestal twist drill that matches the implant diameter is 2 mm only.

In dense bone (D III to D I), the maximum extension length of 6 mm of the crestal twist drill is used. This will reduce the internal condensation to just the right extent while the implant is being screwed in subsequently.

In very cortical bone (D I), the site is additionally prepared with the XiVE tap at the planned implant diameter at a maximum of 15 rpm. The head of the instrument must no longer be visible (6 mm depth). Turn counterclockwise to remove the tap.

Keep the inner blister horizontal when opening and keep it after removal of the implant holder; it contains the cover screw of the implant! The TempBase, which is screwed to the implant, is picked up with the XiVE implant driver for implants (D 3.4).

The implant is placed at 15 rpm and at maximum 50 Ncm. If necessary, the implant is brought to its final position using the implant abutmentconnection.

If submerged healing is planned, the cover screw must be placed after removal of the TempBase. The cover screw is screwed into the implant and tightened at 14 Ncm.

If transgingival healing is planned, a gingiva former of the same thickness as the soft tissue must be placed after removal of the TempBase. The appropriate gingiva former is placed with the hex screwdriver 0.9 mm and screwed in at a maximum torque of 14 Ncm.

After placement, the structurepolished implant neck must be supracrestal.

One dot on the implant driver must point in the vestibular direction in the end position.
