This study is include 80 cases of dental implant of two steps(surgical step and prosthetic step)between May 2014 to April 2017. All the recipient site prepared without irrigation only depending on oozing from the recipient site, one case (1.2%) presents with radiolucent region surrounded the implant in the anterior region of maxilla in healthy young male, that mean the heat generation during slow drilling has no significant effect on the osseointegration.
