This invention relates to a damping dental post key configured to implant a dental root post or dental post for restoration of a tooth.
The dental post key includes a body for handling and a post carrier. During implantation of the dental post, rotation of the body compresses a set in contact with the post carrier reducing a reaction force. This dynamic force configured to rotate the dental root post into a prepared root canal of the tooth in a smooth way.
In this way a limited force will be applied and a root fracture can be prevented. Further, the dental post key can be configured to have a fixed movement in a counterclockwise direction to remove the dental post and a free quarter-cycle movement with effort in a clockwise direction.
