The excessive heat generated by drilling has been a major cause of dental implant failure. This research provided an evidence-based statistics for the use of a dental drilling machine in osteotomy and to prevent dental implant failure. An improved computer system has been developed and used to measure the excess heat generated by dental drilling. Several factors that contributed to dental implant failure are recognized in this research, such as the rotation speed, applied drilling torque, and irrigation rates. Measurements of the temperature rise at different locations and combinations of the factors made it clear that there are the relationships that dentists shall be aware of to both help avoiding failure and improving outcome of a dental implant treatment. The study provided a base case to look further into dental drilling based on poro-thermomechanics.
