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 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 (BCP)
Bone cell protection through specific drill design and thermal control (Patent Pending)
Significantly lower temperatures during implant bed preparation compared to conventional pilot and bone drill bits
Highly Innovative Technology - The Flute
Large flute space safely evacuates bone chips, reducing friction
Lowering friction results in lower temperatures in surrounding bone
In-vitro and in-vivo studies document the importance of maintaining thermal control and lowering temperature in bone preparation procedures
Highly Innovative Technology - The Drill
Small cutting tip for an efficient & easy start without chatter and vibration
Multiple level cutting edges provide smooth and effortless drilling
Efficient and precise osteotomies with reduced drilling protocol
The 1-Drill Protocol™ results in optimized osteotomies when compared to conventional sequential drilling techniques
High primary stability: With the Loocid 1-Drill Protocol™, implant stability is increased up to two fold
Efficient & Flexible
Universal Use: Loocid BCP™ diameters and clinical protocols available for all common implant systems.
