Find the correct SmartPeg in the selection tool below, or download the pdf version by clicking the button at the top of the page.
SmartPegs Reference Guide is now updated (valid from September 2017). You will find more detailed information to make it easier for you to find the right SmartPeg. We will gradually add implant systems’ catalog number.
We welcome the newcomers B&B Dental, ND Implants, TAG Dental, Biotech Dental and Trate with their implant systems. We are also pleased to announce that Nobel Biocare On1 abutments have now suitable SmartPegs. New additions are highlighted in the column to the right.
6 new SmartPegs types are now available: types 73, 74, 75, 76, 78, 79.
You can also find the SmartPeg guide in the Osstell App –
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.
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.
