Dear colleagues,
I’m interested in surgery preparation problems in oral implantology. Now
I’m looking for data/articles on:

- cutting resistance of bone tissue during drilling
- thermal behaviour of bone tissue during drilling
- models of heat conduction in bone tissue.

[I could find only few articles in litterature. Some of them are:

“The physics of heat generation during reaming of the medullarity
Frank Baumgart, Gregor Kohler and Peter E. Ochsner
Injury - Vol. 29, Suppl. No. 2, pp S-B11-S-B25

“Influence of Different Parameters on bone heating and drilling time in
Reingewirtz Y, Szmukler.Moncler S, Senger B.
Clinical Oral Implants Research 8: 189-197;

“Temperature changes in bovine mandibular bone during implant site
preparation: an assessment using infra-red thermography”
I.C. Benington, P.A. Biagioni, P.J. Crossey, D.L. Hussey, S.Sheridan and
P.J. Lamey
Journal of Dentistry Vol. 24, No 4, pp 263-267

“The effect of Speed, Pressure, and Time on Bone Temperature During the
Drilling of Implant Sites”
David L. Brisman
The International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants - 11: 35-37


“Measurements of Shaft Speed While Drilling Trough Bone”
Mustafa B. Abouzgia, and David F. James
J Oral Maxillofac Surg 53: 1308-1315;

“Increase of temperature during osteotomy
In vitro and in vivo investigations”
R. Wächter, P.Stoll
Int J Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 20:245-249

I will post a summary of responses.
Thank you
