Restoring a tooth with a dental implant involves using several appliances and tools. Once the implant is placed inside the bone, the dentist needs to fix different elements to it. This is done for multiple reasons, such as helping the gums heal after the implant surgery or placing the dental crown on top of the implant.
These appliances and different elements are connected to the implant through a screw.
As expected, a dental implant screwdriver is necessary to safely screw all these appliances.
A dental implant screwdriver is a special type of screwdriver. It is designed to fasten the screws of a dental implant.
However, it is essential to understand that these tools only act as regular screwdrivers. Therefore, they don't have any mechanism that helps the dentist regulate the torque.
The practitioner can use a dental implant screwdriver to place or remove abutments and other elements, such as the healing abutment.
The practitioner can also use the dental implant screwdriver to fasten a crown. However, this should only be done to secure it in place. A torque wrench must be used to apply the precise torque.
