Implant dentistry has achieved excellent success and survival rates based on decades of intense research and clinical practice. We have learned about the prerequisites of implant placement, about materials, and of the need to consider the biological principles of osseointegration. Consequently, failure rates have reduced.
This lecture will provide a systematic overview of factors influencing primary and secondary implant stability, and thus the long-term success of osseointegration.
Stability can be influenced by the implant (e.g. material, surface modification, design) and by local factors (e.g. bone quantity and quality, systemic diseases). Surgical training and skill also play important roles in this context. In this lecture, we discuss how controlling the factors affecting implant stability help to avoid failures of osseointegration. The ability to measure implant stability provides a scientific basis for choosing the appropriate restorative treatment option, with the overall aim being to achieve predictable outcomes.
- To understand local and systemic risk factors in implant dentistry
- To understand which factors influence primary implant stability
- To understand the principles of implant stability measurement
- To be able to use implant stability measurement for individual decisions on loading protocols
