Implant site preparation procedure is the most important factor that affects early osseointegration performance of a dental implant. During the side preparation procedure increase in the bone temperature above critic limit causes irreversible osteonecrosis. This heat rise compromises implant area around implants thus ending with unsuccessful osseointegration outcomes.
