Experimental
OsseoDensification (OD) protocol
  • Device: OsseoDensification (OD) protocol
    Osseodensification is a drilling process by which bone is being compacted and auto-grafted in an outwardly expanding direction from the osteotomy. When the osseodensification drills are being rotated in a reversed, non-cutting direction a strong and dense layer of bone is formed along the walls and base of the osteotomy.
Active Comparator
standard drilling (SD) protocol
  • Device: standard drilling (SD) protocol (NobelReplace┬« Conical)
    osteotomy preparation through bone excavation is necessary in implant site development for the placement of dental implants. The process involves a forward cutting process with removal of bone tissue creating appropriate size osteotomy for the dental implant.
