Osstell [オステル] ISQ スケール

Osstell [オステル] の特許技術は、デバイスの振動を伴う周波数を測定する、共鳴振動周波数分析 (RFA) を使用しています。共振周波数を比較することによって、歯科インプラントの安定性を様々な統計と共に、共同周波数の変化につれて識別することが出来ます。

ISQ又はインプラント安定指数は、1から100の範囲であり、インプラントの安定性に関わる測定値です。 ISQ スケールは、極小の動揺への 非線型相関を持っています。1,200以上の科学的リファレンスト共に、安定性が高い数値は70 ISQ以上、60-69 が中程度の安定性、また、60 ISQ は、安定性が低いと考慮されることが分かっています。

インプラント安定指数(ISQ) は、インプラントの安定性を測定する客観的な世界基準です。ISQの臨床範囲は、通常55-80となっています。高数値は、通常 上顎よりも下顎骨で見られます。TSQ の範囲は、 極小の動揺への非線型相関を持っています。1,300以上の科学的リファレンスト共に、高い安定性は70 ISQ以上、60-69 が中間の安定性、また、60 ISQ は、低い安定性だと考慮されることが分かっています。初期のISQ値が高い場合、I安全性の通常レベルの場合、安定性のわずかな低下は、通常横ばい状態となります。安全性の大きな落ち込み又は低下は、警告サインが出されるはずです。数値が低いほど、治癒期間の後に高まることが予測されます。その反対は、インプラント及びアクションの失敗の可能性が有り、検討する必要があります。

1. 20 Jahre Erfahrung mit der Resonanzfrequenzanalyse

Sennerby L Prof, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden Implantologie 2013;21(1):21-33 (In German) Translated from German “It is likely that ISQ measurements can be used as one additional parameter for diagnosis of implant stability and decision-making during implant treatment and follow-up. The threshold values are the present author’s own somewhat conservative suggestions based on own experience and other values may be relevant for other clinicians and implant designs. The green zone contains “safe” implants showing primary ISQ values from, for instance 70 and above. The red zone contains “questionable” implants with an ISQ value below for instance 55. The yellow zone represents implants with an ISQ from 55 to 70”.

2. Immediate vs. early loading of SLA implants in the posterior mandible: 5-year results of randomized controlled clinical trial.

Kokovic V, Jung R, Feloutzis A, Todorovic V, Jurisic M, Hämmerle C Clinical Oral Implants Research, 00, 2013, 1-6 After 5 years, survival in the both groups was 100 %. The mean value of primary implant stability was 76,92 ± 0,79 ISQ. In the first 6 weeks, ISQ values significantly increased in the test group as well as in the control group. Based on these results, the self-tapping implants inserted in posterior mandible can provide adequate primary stability value as the main factor for immediate and early loading protocol.

3. Early Loading of Nonsubmerged Titanium Implants with a Chemically Modified Sand-Blasted and Acid-Etched Surface: 6-Month Results of a Prospective Case Series Study in the Posterior Mandible Focusing on Peri-Implant Crestal Bone Changes and Implant Stability Quotient (ISQ) Values

Michael M. Bornstein, Dr. med. dent.; Christopher N. Hart, DMD; Sandro A. Halbritter, Dr. med. dent.; Dean Morton, BDS, MS;† Daniel Buser, Prof. Dr. med. dent.  Clin Implant Dent Relat Res 2009 If the ISQ value at day to load is < 65, an additional healing period is recommended, and the ISQ values is measured again 3 weeks later until the required level is reached. This approach is practical and well understood by patients. (Prof. Daniel Buser prefers ≥ 70 ISQ, single teeth, early loading/Straumann, otherwise add three weeks, according to an oral presentation given at the Osstell Scientific Symposium in connection to the of the EAO 2010.)

4. The Predictive Value of Resonance Frequency Analysis in the Surgical Placement and Loading of Endosseus Implants

Serge Baltayan, Joan Pi-Anfruns, Tara Aghaloo, Peter Moy J Oral Maxillofac Surg 74:1145-1152, 2016 One-stage placement of implants with ISQ values greater than 66 can be performed. Implants with ISQ values less than or equal to 66 should be placed using the two-stage protocol, which shows a higher survival rate. The computed ISQ = 66 cut-off value used to select between one-stage and two-stage placement is validated in this study. Moreover, early loading of implants with ISQ values greater than 64 can be performed. Implants with ISQ values less than 64 should utilize traditional loading, which shows a higher survival rate. The computed ISQ = 64 cut-off value used to select between early and traditional loading is validated in this study. Higher ISQ values at osseointegration correlate with higher survival rates.

5. Direct Loading of Implants

Pär-Olov Östman DDS, PhD, MD, Private practitioner, Falun- and Biomaterial group, Sahlgrenska  Academy, Gothenburg – Tandläkartidningen årg 100 nr 3, 2008 Paper IV 20 consecutive patients with totally edentulous maxillas were included in the study. The criteria for direct loading was insertion torque 30 Ncm and an ISQ > 60 on the most posterior implants and a sum of 200 ISQ (average 50 ISQ) on the 4 anterior implants. The overall conclusion with the thesis is that dental implants can be direct loaded with a good result if high primary stability can be obtained and if a stable provisional bridge with good occlusion is splinting the implants.

6. Diagnosis of Implant Stability and its Impact on Implant Survival: A Prospective Case Series Study

Daniel Rodrigo, Luis Aracil, Conchita Martin, Mariano Sanz  Clin. Oral Impl. Res. 21, 2010; 255-261 The evaluation of RFA values to assess implant secondary stability (Osstell 2) demonstrated a statistically significant correlation with implant outcome. In fact, no implant with ISQ > 60 failed, while 19 % of implants with ISQ < 60 failed.

7. The relationship between resonance frequency analysis (RFA) and lateral displacement of dental implants: An in vitro study

Pagliani L, Sennerby L, Petersson A, Verrocchi D, Volpe S & Andersson P Journal of Oral Rehabilitation 2012 Both RFA and displacement measurements correlated with bone density. It is concluded that RFA measurements reflect the micromobility of dental implants, which in turn is determined by the bone density at the implant site. The correlation between ISQ and micron was non-linear and micro motion was reduced with app. 50 % from 60 ISQ to 70 ISQ.

8. Implant Stability Quotient (ISQ) vs Direct in Vitro Measurement of Primary Stability (Micromotion): Effect of Bone Density and Insertion Torque

Paolo Trisi PhD, Teocrito Carlesi DDS, Marco Colagiovanni DDS, Giorgio Perfetti MD, DDS Journal of Osteology and Biomaterials, Volume 1, Number 3, 2010 Results showed a high dependence between the observed micromotion and the ISQ values, indicating that micromotion decreased with increasing ISQ values. An in vitro study and the results cannot be directly transferred to clinical applications.

9. Early loading of titanium dental implants with an intra-operatively conditioned hydrophilic implant surface after 21 days of healing.

Stefan Paul Hicklin, Esther Schneebeli, Vivianne Chappuis, Simone Francesco Marco Janner, Daniel Buser, Urs Brägger Clin. Oral Impl. Res 00, 2015; 1-9 Functional occlusal loading of implants with a hydrophilic, moderately rough endosseal surface and ISQ values > 70 three weeks after placement, appears to be a safe and predictable treatment option in healed sites in the posterior mandible without need of bone augmentation procedures.
