Insertion post
With the aid of the insertion instrument, a dental implant can be taken out of its sterile wrapping and inserted into the particular position without being touched. The surface of the dental implant is rough and literally grows together with the bone. Bacteria can multiply in the rough titanium surface of the implant where the human immune system cannot reach. During setting, the implant should not make contact with anything else; otherwise, it could become unsterile. If the titanium shell is polluted whilst implant insertion the bone might get inflamed, the outcome could be the loss of the implant. Therefore dental implants have to be inserted in the jawbone only if sterile and with the aid of an insertion instrument.
