Loocid BCP™ Standard shows significantly lower temperatures in in-vitro studies compared to conventional pilot drills. A mild temperature increase, without bone cell damage, can activate the bone formation process.
A pilot drill can generate excessive heat during implant bed preparation. Temperatures over 70 °C create immediately evident bone cell death. Over a period of weeks, a wider zone of necrotic bone develops around the implant which can prevent proper bone healing and can impede osseointegration.
