The Loocid BCP innovative drill bit design was initiated based on clinical reports showing that after placement of dental implants a critical healing period of 3-4 weeks exists. In this period, decreased implant stability, potential complications, and even failures have been reported. Surgical trauma, after implant bed preparation, results in bone resorption and remodeling that may affect healing times and osseointegration. This can be a significant problem when advanced treatment protocols, such as immediate function or immediate loading are used.
Based on these clinical findings, the Loocid BCP technology was developed featuring bone cell protection paired with high clinical efficiency.
The clinical goal of Loocid BCP is a high level of implant stability through minimizing trauma and maximizing efficiency for every implant osteotomy.
Bone Cell Protection
Bone cell protection through specific drill design and thermal control (Patent Pending)
Significantly lower temperatures during implant bed preparation compared to conve tional pilot and bone drill bits
Loocid BCP™ Standard shows significantly lower temperatures in in-vitro studies compared to conventional pilot drills. A mild temperature increase, without bone cell damage, can activate the bone formation process.
A pilot drill can generate excessive heat during implant bed preparation. Temperatures over 70 °C create immediately evident bone cell death. Over a period of weeks, a wider zone of necrotic bone develops around the implant which can prevent proper bone healing and can impede osseointegration.
