“Bullet” Shaped Drills.
Scallop Shaped Drills (SS drills).
Cortical Release Drills (SR drills).
- Auxiliary Drills:
- a. Pilot Drill
- b. Twist Drill
- c. Extension Drill
When performing dental drilling methods, you require drills that minimize harm risks, ease the cutting process, and save time.
The best implant drills work with any handpiece and implant system. When using, always refer to diagram 1.
It is a small, high-speed handpiece used during dental procedures. Mostly used by dentists to shape tooth structure, remove decay, and to insert a crown or filling.
- The “bullet” portion of this drill represents the length (L).
- The base of the “bullet” portion of the drill represents its diameter (D).
- The flared portion of the implant drills adds to the length of the osteotomy in 1mm increments, as well as, adding to the diameter in 1mm increments.
Working In Soft Bone (Type III, IV)
It is recommended to undersize your implant osteotomy drill while working in the soft bone.
For example, if you prep a D5 x L10 osteotomy in the soft bone, use a D3.5 x L8.5 drill. The flare adds an additional 2mm to the length, leaving an implant submerged 0.5mm subcrestally. It also has an additional 2mm to the diameter, leaving a 0.25mm crestal-release ring around the future implant.
This way, one can avoid any additional pressure on the crestal, while creating stability in the cancellous portion of the bone.
Working in Hard Bone (Type I, II)
The most common procedure for inserting screws. It is recommended to create a flare either using the bullet drills or scallop shapes (SS drills) to achieve a cortical release ring around the implants, thereby avoiding any pressure and future bone loss.
Cortical Release (CR) Drills
This Instrumentation offers a simplified, yet versatile surgical experience. It is designed to be used with any implant system when additional release is needed to advance the implant placement.
Used to release the cortical portion of the osteotomy without altering the density of the cancellous bone.
Cortical Release (CR) Drills are used for bone profiling when placing healing abutments or accommodating multi-unit abutments in ALL-ON-X CASES. You can term it as a bone profiling drill.
Scallop Shaped (SS) Drills
Trusted by experts and professionals for different dental procedures. Many dentists use it for procedures such as:
- Sculpting and shaping of the “bedding” for future restoration.
- Bone profiling.
- The Extension Drill is supplied for better access when working with long adjacent teeth (anterior maxilla).
- Scallop shapes, also widely used in sinus augmentation for a more safe and predictable lateral approach ( opening a “window”).
Universal Shapers are a true evolutionary step for osteotomy preparation. From concept to reality, these burs are a game-changer allowing clinicians to elegantly prepare implant receptor sites with fewer drills, and less steps. My digital workflow has been enhanced by the ability to plan and accurately execute bone contouring, sculpting, bone reduction, and the extended use for lateral sinus augmentations with the large diamond “mushroom” burs*. A great addition for any implant surgeon.

Here’s a written one from her for now: “Universal Shapers are the way to go to take your implant tissue anatomy to the next level. This user-friendly system works with any brand of implant to achieve universally excellent results! It allows me to create an osteotomy and contour hard tissue in one step to achieve both ideal depth and natural anatomy. I especially love the dome-shaped diamond drills for development of pontic sites! I found the kit to be the perfect way to shape tissue and place implants for a full arch case. They are a must-have addition to your implant armamentarium.”
