For nearly 40 years, dental implants have had high success rates as artificial tooth roots in alveolar bone. However, creating an osteotomy and inserting a dental implant has traditionally involved a series of multiple drills, lengthy surgical time, and patient frustration. Fortunately, a high-efficiency, fluted, step-drill (OneDrill®, OsseoFuse®) specifically designed for dental implant placement in crestal bone, leading to a shortened procedural time, is available. This enables dentists to eliminate the need for changing drills numerous times and therefore lessening the possibility of surgical contamination and error, and raise the predictability of implant treatment success. By combining all the components and functions of traditional multiple-sequence drills into one-including site marking, drill guiding, increasing diameter width, and a stopper to avoid excessive osteotomy depth-the OneDrill® represents a revolutionary approach for completing immediate osteotomies and implant placement that achieves predictable primary stability. This article reviews the mechanisms and function of the OneDrill® and presents two clinical cases to demonstrate its utility.
