In the ideal world you would want to use a hammer drill, but if you have a regular drill, then the only thing you can do is make sure to have the right drill bits attached to the chuck. The only thing that will get through concrete is a good quality masonry bit.
Accordingly, can you use a hammer drill for regular drilling?
A hammer drill can and usually should be used for drilling into a hard surface like brick or concrete, i.e., masonry. Some hammer drills do have a feature which allows the user to turn it back into a regular drill. In contrast, an impact driver is used mainly for driving in fasteners like screws and nails.
