Placing an Angled Mini Dental Implant

Good morning and welcome to this Monday Morning Minute. Today we’re going to show you how to place the 15 degree angled abutment mini dental implant into position number seven. Wanted to show you the instrumentation first that we’re going to use so it doesn’t get confusing. You have a 15 degree angled abutment, contra angled driver along with hand driver that goes in the hand wrench.

And you also have the straight driver, which I’ll show you how to use with this as an orientation device. The way we’re going to do this is we’re going to place it in our contra angle driver into the handpiece. And if you take a look at this, we have an angulation of the driver down the bottom. We’re also going to take a look at the implant. When the implant is in the packaging, after you open it up, you’re going to see that it has an angle to it.

You want the ball of the implant facing upwards so that they make a V. So when you grab that implant, the implant comes out and the implant is lined up in long axis with the contra angle driver. If you do not do that, you are going to have an angulation like this and the implant is not going to look right. It’s not going to go in. So you have to have that angulation correct.

And the way you orientate that is you place this and make sure that this is on the long axis of the contra angle driver. You can also pick it up with the hand driver in the same manner. You will take the hand driver and you will have the angulation the same way as you do with picking it up. You want that angulation perpendicular to the driver.

Okay, now that we have picked up the implant, we’re going to go place it in the mouth number. We’re going to be doing tooth number seven. We’re going to place the implant in.

Now what I’m going to do is we’re going to use the hand instrument for the last couple turns. Again, you want to make sure that that angulation is facing down. That goes to the ball that’s facing up.

Now, as you can see, we put this on as an indicating guide that this is not in the proper area. It’s actually angled out to the buckle a little bit. So what we want to do is put this back on and rotate this to the proper angle towards up like that. You can check the orientation to make sure that’s where you want it by placing the straight driver on there. And you can see that the angulation is in parallel with the crowns of the adjacent teeth. I hope that helped. Thanks for joining me in this Monday morning minute.
