Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2017 -- Surgical drills are used during surgical procedures to drill bone. Bone fracture treatment usually involves repairing of the fractured parts to their initial position and immobilizing them until the recovery takes place. Drilling of bone is common to make a hole for screw insertion to repair the fractured parts for immobilization. Orthopedic drilling during surgical process increases the bone temperature and forces which can cause osteonecrosis reducing the stability and strength of the fixation.
There are two types of surgical drills: pneumatic surgical drills and electric surgical drills. A pneumatic motor is used for pneumatic surgical drill for its high-speed rotations. The pneumatic surgical drills are usually used for oral surgery as well as other dental procedures. The advantage of using this type of motor for a surgical drill is that it offers greater torque as compared to a battery-powered drill, and makes it easier and faster to drill. This means a patient would be under anesthesia for a shorter time and will have a safer experience. Electric surgical drill is an alternative to pneumatic surgical drills and use an electric motor. Electric drills use battery power, though it can be also plugged into wall sockets. An electric drill offers less power as compared to pneumatic drill, but costs less as compared to pneumatic drill.
