Despite the evolution of implant designs and surfaces it will always be you, the treating doctor, together with your patient, who makes the decision when to load. It is a complex decision that involves not only the patients’ wishes and general situation, but of course also several odontological parameters. One of the most important factors is the stability of the implant.
The degree of implant stability is hard to determine once the implant has started to integrate. Also, at placement, stability is difficult to judge objectively and the “tactile feeling” or torque measurements will not work as a baseline for future comparisons.
Osstell meters make it possible not only to measure the initial implant stability, but also to monitor the development of osseointegration over time.To learn more, please visit: www.osstell.com
