Title: TOOL FOR HANDLING A SCREW ELEMENT OF AN INTRA-OSSEOUS IMPLANT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a screwing tool for handling a screw element of an intra-osseous implant, said tool having a blade with an end for introducing into a screw slot. The tool is characterized in that the blade end has two parallel blade sections which are a distance apart in respect of the direction of the breadth of the blade end. The two sections are connected in such a way that an elastic force acts between them in such a way that, in home position, in the absence of exterior force, both blade sections are displaced in respect of each other in the direction of the thickness of the blade end, and at least one of the blade sections can be displaced in respect of the other, against the elastic force acting between them, into a position with a displacement in respect of the direction of the thickness of the blade end, said displacement being less than the corresponding displacement in the home position.
