This literature review is aimed to examine the effects of bone overheating on peri-implant bone resorption. Pubmed and google database is searched for articles published between 1980 up to date and inclueded articles which subjects are irrigation, bone heating and drill speed on peri-implant bone resorption. The studies were divided into two titles, in vivo and in vitro. Thermal changes are examined under two headings; thermocouple and thermal chambers. Results of the studies are evaluated the according to parameters of irrigation and drill speed. It has been found a huge resorption of cortical bone with no irrigation. Internal and combined irrigation are superior to external irrigation particularly for deep cavities. There is no difference between speeds of 800/1200 rpm were used in the group of implants placed with irrigation and 50 rpm in the implants placed without irrigation. While the effects on the heating of the bone, the irrigation and the drill speed were investigated, no evaluation is made in the marginal bone area; further studies should focus on this subject.
