Assessment of the Heat Generation at the Marginal Bone Area during the Implant Insertion Using Infrared Thermography (Experimental study)
Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the parameters of the implant micro- and macro design on the heat generation at the marginal bone area during the implant insertion using thermal camera.200 test specimens of implants of different designs and dimensions were inserted into 200 artificial bone blocks and 200 test specimens were placed into 40 fresh pig ribs. It was established that the implant length influenced the heat generation more than the implant diameter and that the tapered design causes less temperature increase compared to the cylindrical design. We concluded that the heat generation during the implant insertion could be decreased be using shorter implants with smaller diameter and conical shape.
