How to Use

Filpin - Restoration Retention System
Latch the correct sized drill head (for your chosen size of FILPIN) onto a slow-spreed handpiece and make a pilot hole up to the drill’s self-limiting depth of 2mm. Repeat as necessary. NB: Ensure the pilot hole is drilled at a speed of 1500rpm or less.

Latch a FILPIN onto the handpiece and insert into the hole – hardly any pressure is needed to encourage the pin to insert. Once the correct depth of 2mm is reached, FILPIN will self-shear at exactly the right point. Repeat as necessary. NB: Ensure the pin is inserted at a speed of 1000rpm or less.
