    During the twenty-two years of my clinical and scientific work with dental implants I have been a witness to huge development in the implant dentistry. Changes to implants' macro and micro design, surfaces, and surgical and prosthetic procedures that expand today's treatment with dental implants. But for me, the most impressive improvement was an implementation of resonance frequency analysis (RFA) from scientific to clinical work in implant dentistry.

    How I determine loading protocol and timing of restoration

    Measuring ISQ has become a critical component in my implant treatment, as it provides objective information about the stability of the implants I place. Based upon the initial implant stability or ISQ value, I determine the loading protocol and timing of restoration (immediate, early, delayed).

    I have been placing dental implants since 1998 and as most of you, I have seen many advances in the field of dentistry that make implant dentistry safer and more predictable. The biggest boon to treatment absolutely has to be the advent of CBCT technology. This has made the surgical phase of treatment more predictable and safer for the patient.

    Dr. Michael Norton talks about Osstell ISQ and RFA in his practice.  Dr. Norton has been using Osstell for many years and has found value in having the information it provides to him about his patients.  In addition, Dr. Norton is just completing his term of office as President of the Academy of Osseointegration which will hold its 2018 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles February 28th through March 3rd.   We and Dr. Norton welcome your comments and questions on his thoughts.

    How Progressive Loading Solved a critical Implant Case.

    Every day we do a lot of things based on our intuition. We make decisions based on our own or others experience.

    We do not need science to help us in our daily life, and we don't have a clear indicator that shows us if our decision is the best.

    Decisions based on practical experience is our way of life.

    But when it comes to our profession as dentists, we do, or at least we should, evidence-based dentistry for...almost every treatment we perform.

    As the title of this article says, I´m going to present a case about "progressive loading."

     

    Yes, I know, progressive loading is supported by few clinical studies (Rotter 1996, Appleton 2005, Ghoveizi 2013), but -and here comes the interesting part- the rationale behind this concept makes sense from a clinical and biological point of view.
