    Have you ever placed an implant in an augmented bone site and added another few months of healing time just to be on the safe side?

    The Importance of Implant Stability in Successful Dental Implant Therapy

    It has long been recognized in the dental implant literature that implant stability is a critical factor in predictable treatment outcomes. Both primary stability (mechanical stability) and stability prior to provisionalization or restoration of the implant should be considered in the individual treatment plan. The secondary (aka biological stability) will indicate the level of osseointegration when compared to the initial primary stability (mechanical stability) at placement of the implant. There are other factors, of course, to be considered but there is little disagreement in the literature that implant stability is key.

    Primary and Secondary Stability: What is Important and What Don’t We Know

    Physiologic healing after implant placement varies from patient to patient and site to site. Surgeons must find balance between mechanical stability and avoiding excessive trauma to alveolar bone, especially the cortical bone found at the alveolar crest. The two measures of quantifying primary stability are insertion torque volume (ITV) resonance frequency (RFA). Implant stability quotient or ISQ is a value used to determine stability via RFA.

    Why secondary stability is crucial for successful implant treatments.

    Primary and secondary stability is a much discussed topic. Which one should a clinician aim for to achieve successful implant treatments? We met with Dr. Stephen Jacobs after his lecture at the AO Annual Meeting about primary and secondary implant stability to clarify things. 

     

    Could you explain the difference between primary and secondary stability?

    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.

    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.
