A dental implant installation method and device for picking up a prosthetic support implant, transporting it to an osteotomy site, then transmitting rotational force from a drill to the implant to thread the implant into bone tissue at the osteotomy site. The device includes an alignment section that aligns and rotationally engages the device in a socket of a threaded implant. An aft end of the device is configured to releasably engage a drill and to transmit turning forces from such drill to the device. A retainer supported on the shaft adjacent the alignment section releasably engages and retains the implant against axial disengagement once the alignment section has been inserted into the socket.
