Torque Ratchet - Dental Implantation Technique
Using a torque ratchet, implants are inserted into the bone with a precisely defined torque.
In the image, a torque ratchet is shown. You see an implantation in the lower jaw; the patient’s bone was molded before the implantation. That’s why, in this case, no punching was performed.
Instead, the mucosa was cut open. Three implants have already been placed; the fourth is now being screwed into the bone with the torque ratchet. Thanks to the torque ratchet, the implantologist can estimate how well-suited the bone is for immediate loading, i.e., whether or not the implants can be provided with an artificial tooth right away.
