Dental implants are getting common these days and have become alternate to orthodox techniques. A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone to support a dental prosthetic device such as a crown, bridge, or to act as an orthodontic anchor. The result of any implant process relies on bone density, implant design, and surgical techniques. During surgery to place the dental implant, the oral surgeon makes a cut to open gum and expose the bone. Holes are drilled into the bone, where the dental implant post will be placed. In the dentistry techniques such as conventional drilling, osteotome technique and osseodensification are used to prepare the site for implant. Among these techniques, conventional drilling is widely used. However, it has drawbacks such as longer bone healing periods, lower primary stability, and high heat generation. The main aim of our review is to put forward a detailed description of better and alternative surgical techniques for implant site preparation. A systematic description and categorization of these methods are given along with their benefits. Surgical procedures like osteotome technique (bone condensation) and osseodensification (bone expansion) have been studied for this review. These methods have demonstrated to improve osseointegration which in turn increases the implant stability as well as the healing period. Thus, adopting these methods will significantly improve the stability and quality of the implant. Nevertheless, additional research is needed to study more efficient techniques which will make the process of implant site preparation easier and quicker. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
