The SmartPeg is used together with the measurement instruments Osstell IDx or Osstell ISQ. Both instruments measure the resonance frequency of a SmartPeg, when it is attached to an implant. The SmartPeg is attached to the implant or abutment when a measurement is made. It is easy to mount and requires minimal space thanks to its small size. To avoid damage to the implant, the SmartPeg material is quite soft, which limits the lifetime of the threads.

FAQ

 

Can I re-use the SmartPegs?

The SmartPegs are single use items. To avoid damage to the implant, the SmartPeg material is quite soft, which limits the lifetime of the threads. So the SmartPeg cannot be reused for two reasons:
First, the magnet cannot stand the heat of an autoclave, it will be affected and discolored. Second, the threads are made weak not to jeopardize the inner threads in the implant. Reusing the SmartPeg might wear out the threads and give misleading ISQ values.

 

Is the ISQ-value sensitive to how hard the SmartPeg is tightened?

The SmartPeg should be tightened with 4-5 Ncm, which means “finger tight”, using the SmartPeg Mount. It is enough with firm contact between the SmartPeg and the implant. The difference in ISQ value will then stay within 2 ISQ units. (If the SmartPeg is tightened too loosely, the ISQ-value will be lower.) If the SmartPeg is over-tightened, there is a risk that the SmartPeg threads will be damaged.
