The aim of the present study was to observe the abrasion of implant drills and postoperative reactions for the preparation of the interradicular immediate implant bed during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Thirty-two implant drills were included in four groups: blank, improved surgery, traditional surgery, and control. In the improved surgery group, a dental handpiece with a surgical bur was used to decoronate the first molar and create a hole in the middle of the retained root complex, followed by the pilot drilling protocol through the hole. The remaining root complex was separated using a surgical bur and then extracted. Subsequently, the implant bed was prepared. Implant drills were used in the traditional surgery group to complete the decoronation, hole creation, and implant-drilling processes. The tooth remained intact until the implant bed was prepared. The surface roughness of the pilot drill was observed and measured. Surgery time, postoperative reactions (swelling, pain, and trismus), and fear of coronavirus disease 2019 scale (FCV-19S) were measured and recorded, respectively. Statistical analysis revealed significant difference with surface roughness among blank group (0.41 +/- 0.05 mum), improved surgery group (0.37 +/- 0.06 mum), traditional surgery group (0.16 +/- 0.06 mum), and control group (0.26 +/- 0.04 mum) (P < .001). Significant differences were revealed with surgery time between improved surgery group (5.63 +/- 1.77 min) and traditional surgery group (33.63 +/- 2.13 min) (P < .001). Swelling, pain, and trismus (improved group: r >= 0.864, P <= .006;traditional group: r >= 0.741, P <= .035) were positively correlated with the FCV-19S. This study proved that a new pilot drill could only be used once in traditional surgery but could be used regularly in improved surgery. Improved surgery was more effective, efficient, and economical than the traditional surgery. The higher FCV-19S, the more severe swelling, pain, and trismus.
