Osstell ISQ - Monitor Osseointegration
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 also several odontological parameters. One of the most important factors for a successful implant treatment is the stability of the implant.
Osstell instruments make it possible to monitor osseointegration in a precise and objective manner.
The main Osstell advantages:
- Reduced treatment time
- Manage patients at risk
Reduce treatment time
If the initial mechanical stability is high enough, a one-stage approach is often used together with immediate or early loading. By measuring stability with Osstell before final restoration, and comparing the value to the baseline value taken during placement, you gain a better basis for deciding whether to proceed.
Manage patients at risk
Monitoring osseointegration is especially valuable when treating patients with risk factors. Osstell gives you an early warning if the biological process is not progressing as expected. It helps you avoid costs due to premature loading and allows you to treat more patients with risk factors in a more predictable manner.
