Evaluating the Effectiveness of Biomaterial Removal from Dental Implant Drills
Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences Services University of Health Sciences United States
Pagination or Media Count:
Multiple studies question the efficacy of cleaning and sterilizing protocols for multi-use dental burs and endodontic files. The US Army, among other institutions, implemented a single use policy for burs and endodontic files included in this policy are implant osteotomy drills. We hypothesize that our cleaning protocols cannot guarantee complete debris removal thereby supporting the single use drill policy.
