Factors Affecting Implant Healing

The survival and success of dental implants depends on many factors such as bone quality and quantity, the patient's health, the implant's design, and surgical technique.

Surgical Technique

Maintaining bone temperature below 47 degrees Celsius during implant osteotomy preparation is crucial to prevent necrosis.

To prevent overheating, implant surgeons will irrigate the osteotomy with saline during preparation.

However, a challenge arises when surgical guides are used as they can obstruct the saline irrigation from reaching the osteotomy.

The IrriGUIDE Adapter

  • Protects bone from overheating when using a surgical guide
  • Direct Irrigation to the implant osteotomy
  • Universal guide compatability
  • Enhances surgical site visibility
  • Increases surgical efficiency
  • Improves patient comfort
  • “The IrriGUIDE Adapter is the missing piece to the surgical guide workflow. Now I am confident that the guided implant drilling procedure will not compromise healing”

    Thomas J - periodontist

  • "What a great addition to my surgical workflow. Proficient osteotomy preparation without the need to remove the guide to maintain proper irrigation. Fantastic!"

  • Step 1: Drill

    Drill a hole through the side of the surgical guide with the IrriGUIDE Adapter Seating Bur.

  • Step 2: Place

    Place the IrriGUIDE Adapter into the hole and rotate to the desired orientation.

  • Step 3: Set

    Place a drop of cyanoacrylate glue onto the joint between the IrriGUIDE Adapter and the surgical guide. Allow to set completely. (See Tech Data Sheet for details).

  • Step 4: Trim

    Trim any excess IrriGUIDE Adapter material from the inner aspect of the surgical guide using the IrriGUIDE Adapter Trimming Bur.

  • Step 5: Attach

    Attach the irrigation tubing from the drilling unit to the IrriGUIDE adapter.
