Zimmer Implants: Drilling Protocol for Guided Surgery?

Last Updated August 02, 2019
Reviewed By:  OsseoNews Team

I treatment planned a fully guided case for Zimmer dental implants with the company Full Contour. When I got the drilling protocol, it doesn’t really give any useful information of the protocol. They said they don’t have the full protocol to give out yet. How am I supposed to interpret the information they sent me and actually get a full protocol for the placement of implants? It mentions minimum implant length of 17 and 20mm. The implant kit has drill lengths of 16, 19, 22 and 25. Does it mean I use 19mm for the 17 and 22 for the 20? Any insight or help?
