Early loading protocols in implant patients

How to use the ISQ values in daily practice.
Highlight from Prof. Daniel Buser's lecture at the Osstell Scientific Forum at EAO in Glasgow, 2010

How to use the ISQ values in daily practice

Prof. Buser presents his experience of Osstell, accumulated over nine years. He begins his presentation with an overview of the university’s general strategies for implant therapy. The focus then moves to the two main areas – early loading in standard posterior implant sites and in cases of sinus floor elevation. According to Prof. Buser, patient management is much easier with Osstell. Normally, simply add healing time until the ISQ value is good enough to proceed. The actual value depends on the clinical situation, but “for daily practice” Prof. Buser targets an ISQ value of 70 for early loading protocol with routine patients.
