How to use Summers technique exactly? What sequence?

Last Updated October 01, 2017

I have treatment planned this patient for a Summer’s lift to place a Straumann Tissue Level WN 4.8 of 8mm implant in the maxilla in the right second molar site. I have 7mm of bone. I have a kit with 5 convex and 5 concave osteotomes as pictured. The osteotomes are 4.2mm in diameter, all angulated. I’d like to know what the correct sequence is? After I drill the osteotomy, what sequence of osteotomes should I use? When should I use the convex osteotomes and when should I use the concave? Should I use only the concaves?
