Steco offers different types of titanium drill sleeves.
From simple diagnostic planning to fully guided implant surgery different sleeve types are used.
Our sleeve geometries are implemented in most common implant planning software systems such as 3Shape ImplantStudio, dental wings coDiagnostiX, SMOP, ExoPlan and many others.
Which sleeve for what?
The choice of the drill sleeve depends on the desired use of the implant template. A simple planning template needs other sleeves than a full guided guide for a certain drill kit. The desired accuracy of drill guidance rules the slection of drill sleeve diameter.
StecoGuide comes with different drill sleeve types for every case
for “full-guided” surgical kits
- alternative sleeves für guided surgery
- for drill keys or sleeve on drill tools
- diameter and length adapted to the surgical kits
of named implant manufacturer
best for implant planning and simple surgical stents.
- cylindrical shaped drill sleeve
- easy to measure in x-ray images
- universal diameter (ø2.35 mm standard drill shank)
- simple surgical guide
Titanium single sleeves are available in 5.0 or 10.0 mm length. The outer diameter is 3.0mm. The inner diameter is 2.35 mm and corresponds to the shank of normal drills and surgical instruments in dentistry. The sleeve is available in the popular pilot drill diameter 2.0 mm as well.

special drill sleeves for guided endodontics
together with the Center of Dental Tramatology of University of Basel and coDiagnostiX we developed drill sleeves for endodontic treatment of teeth with pulp canal calcification (PCC).

special drill sleeve system for Thommen Medical
The surgical instruments of Thommen Medical do not fit to the universal StecoGuide double sleeves. Steco developed a dedicated double sleeve system togethjer with Thommen Medical. It consist of an outer sleeve (inner diameter 3.5 mm) with lateral flattenings and two inner sleeves designed for the 2.0 mm pilot drill and the 2.8 mm VECTOdrill. In the outer sleeve the 3.5 mm VECTOdrill out of the Thommen Medical surgical kit can be guided. The depth control is done with the length marking on the drill.
- outer sleeve diameter 3.5 mm, length 6.0 mm
- inner sleeve 2.0 and 2.8 mm, length 6,0 mm
- not compatible to StecoGuide double sleeves (different diameter and cone)
simple radiologic diagnostic planning
- 2.5 or 5.0 mm diameter
- pure titanium
how to make a surgical guide
A surgical guide or surgical template can be produced in the dental laboratory with vacuum forming or other conventional stent forming techniques or it can be produced with milling or printing on the basis of 3D data. The decision for a fabrication method depends on the desired use of the template. A simple planning template can easyly be manufactured on the model, a surgical template for full guided implantology should be supported by digital technologies.
Buid surgical and planning templates fast and easy in the laboratory with the help of our template drills!
The drills leave a hole with the outer measures of the sleeve. So you just drill in the desired position and press the sleeve with the help of the pressing tool into the template. No gluing is needed. The position of the sleeve is defined on the basis of prosthetic requirements or basing on 3D planning data to be tranfered to the model with 3D transfer tables (GonyX, med3D hexapod).

The geometries of our StecoGuide drill sleeves are implemented in the libraries of many 3D implant planning software programs. The CNC milling machine or the 3D printer can leave the holes for the sleeves in the template. Even the press fit can be influenced in many programms.
In the planning software the drill sleeves can be chosen from different libraries. The sleeves are positioned on the implant axis in the desired distance regarding the depth stop of the surgical instrument. In some cases the distance is preadjusted.
