AutoMax Burs provide a faster and safer procedure. They can be used to either core a site for implant placement or to collect autogenous bone atraumatically.
- Sufficient cutting force can be obtained even at low RPM. Autogenous bone can be harvested within 10 seconds!
- Amount of bone harvested may be equivalent to the size of each Auto-Max.
- Enables quick, easy bone harvesting in a single procedure.
- It can be cleaned thoroughly, as the Stopper is easily disconnectable.
- V shaped opening completely prevents bone chips from splattering during drilling.
- May be used in any type of bone with excellent durability.
How to Use
- Connect an Auto-Max to the handpiece and position the stopper on the Auto-Max.
- The Auto-Max should meet the bone surface perpendicularly. Press the handpiece to fix the sharp point of the drill on the bone, and start drilling at about 500RPM with copious irrigation.
- Do not pump during harvest. Pumping may scatter the harvested bone.
- The Auto-Max will automatically stop advancing into the bone at a depth of 4mm.
- Disconnect the stopper from Auto-Max and collect particulated autogenous bone in a sterilized tray. Repeat steps 1-5 until the desired volume of bone is obtained.
- Bone should be harvested from a new site each time, avoiding overlap with other harvest sites.
Clinical Case 1
- Fig 1. Severe periodontitis on # 34. #35 was extracted 2 months before.
- Fig 2. #34 was extracted and the socket was degranulated thoroughly.
- Fig 3. Auto-Max was prepared for bone harvesting.
- Fig 4. Autogenous bone was harvested from the ramus.
- Fig 5. The defect was filled with shaved autogenous bone following implant placement.

Clinical Case 2
- Fig 1. The prosthetics on the mandibular right molar was broken caused by secondary caries.
- Fig 2. Three implants were placed after extraction and degranulation of residual roots. All the implants showed bone defects.
- Fig 3. Auto-Max harvested autogenous bone from edentulous area.
- Fig 4. The autogenous bone was mixed with Mega-Oss bovine to increase volume of graft.
- Fig 5. The defects were filled with the graft mixture and covered with a collagen membrane.
