Exploring ISQ, Loading Protocols, and the Role of Progressive Loading, Join Dr Aly Virani

Jul 01, 2024

We are excited to invite you to watch an on-demand webinar presented by Dr. Aly Virani, originally held on June 6th, and hosted by W&H in the UK. Dr. Virani, an esteemed implantologist and educator, shares his profound insights on the Implant Stability Quotient (ISQ) and its crucial role in dental implantology.

About Dr. Aly Virani
Dr. Virani brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this webinar. His impressive credentials include:

  • – Regional representative for Wales on the ADI board of directors (2015-2017, 2021, 2023)
    – Clinical research fellow and honorary clinical lecturer at the University of Bristol (2013-2018)
    – Diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (2019)
    – Young Ambassador for the International Team for Implantology (2021)

    – Visiting Lecturer in Practical Implantology (2020-present)
  • Currently, Dr. Virani serves as the Implant Dentist and Clinical Director at North Cardiff Dental and Implants and as Course Director for Transformative Education in Dentistry.

In this comprehensive webinar, Dr. Virani delves into the intricacies of the ISQ and its practical applications in dental implantology.

Key learning outcomes include:

Understanding ISQ: Gain a thorough understanding of the ISQ and its clinical significance in assessing implant stability.
Implant loading protocols: Explore various implant loading protocols and their applications based on clinical scenarios and patient-specific factors.
Progressive loading: Learn about the concept of progressive loading and how it can enhance the success rates of dental implants through strategic application.

Dr. Virani emphasizes the importance of discussing implant reception rather than implant failure, noting that success heavily depends on the patient’s healing ability. He explains the ISQ scale, highlighting that while it has a wide range, the interval between 60 and 70 is particularly significant.

Practical insights

Dr. Virani provides practical recommendations for each step in the ISQ scale. He stresses the importance of measuring ISQ at implant placement and prior to final restoration. By tracking the ISQ trend, clinicians can make informed decisions about healing and loading protocols. He also discusses the use of the Osstell Beacon and the SmartPeg, underscoring the importance of accuracy in measurements.

Future courses
Dr. Virani will be leading upcoming courses, including “Site-Specific Implantology” in conjunction with Dr. Gareth Jones in October and “Implant Immediacy” with Dr. Abdul Osman in November.
