Press Room

The 13th Osstell ISQ Annual Symposium

 The 13th Osstell ISQ Annual Symposium will be fully digital and will gather an exciting line-up of international speakers, featuring Dr. Tara Aghaloo (USA), Dr. William Martin (USA), Dr. Stephen T Chen (Australia), Dr. Kyle Stanley (USA) and moderator Dr. Marcus Dagnelid (Sweden). The speakers will discuss how to provide each implant patient with optimal time to teeth – with confidence and predictability.


Clinical expertise at Osstell ISQ Symposium


In the first session, Dr. Tara Aghaloo will discuss the transition from primary to secondary stability, and how important it is with case selection and proper treatment planning in patients with medical risk factors. She will be followed by Dr. William Martin who will share his extensive clinical experience utilizing the Osstell technique and online OsstellConnect platform in a university clinic setting, as well as discuss various clinical cases where an objective approach to implant stability measurements is key. Dr. Stephen T Chen will share his research in timing of implant placement after extraction to obtain predictability, especially in aesthetically critical areas where it influences the entire outcome.



AI – a look into the future


Finally, we will take a look into the future of the dental industry with Dr. Kyle Stanley, where he will present on the exciting topic of AI – Artificial Intelligence – in dental implantology. He is a practicing implant dentist and surgeon, and is also running a company focusing on this topic and already now there are several examples of how we can save both time and be more precise with advanced technology. Within dental implantology and the Osstell
technique, examples will be demonstrated where AI can assist you as a clinician to obtain better clinical results
with your patients.


Interactive session


After each lecture there will be a live Q&A-session and before the final panel discussion, Dr. Marcus Dagnelid will
also show live surgery to further display the Osstell technique.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

• Earn up to 5 continuing education credits, for free
• Watch live surgery

Osstell Beacon available in the US

Gothenburg, Sweden Sept 3rd, 2019: Osstell, the developer of the proprietary diagnostic technology Osstell ISQ (Implant Stability Quotient), today announces that the Osstell Beacon is now available in the United States after receiving clearance from the FDA. The Osstell Beacon is a new, innovative and highly intuitive tool designed to assess dental implant stability. Patients – the priority for Osstell and its users – are increasingly well informed before seeking implant treatment and are often aware of available treatment options. They are increasingly expecting shorter treatment protocols. In addition, there is a growing, aging and medically compromised patient population where healing for many reasons can be unpredictable. In order to meet these demands and changing demographics, there is a need for innovative diagnostic tools to help the individual clinician deliver these treatment protocols while ensuring predictability and patient satisfaction. The more than 1,000 studies where Osstell ISQ technology has been used, provide evidence that Osstell ISQ diagnostics can help improve outcomes and quality, using objective data to guide and optimize the implant treatment for both complex and more straight-forward cases.

Osstell Adds Next Level in Implant Stability Measurement Instruments

Gothenburg, Sweden June 20, 2018: Osstell, the developer of the ISQ diagnostic technology (Implant Stability Quotient), now presents the next leap in the evolution of implant diagnostic instrumentation: The Osstell Beacon, an innovative and highly intuitive tool designed to guide implant treatments for more predictable results.    Osstell’s patented technology allow clinicians working with implants to make decisions based on reliable and objective stability values when determining the course of treatment for each patient. The procedure can be used to measure primary implant stability, observe osseointegration based on secondary stability readings and determine the best possible time for loading the implant, thereby helping to prevent failures, shortening healing time and ensuring high quality.   The dental implant market has changed over the past few years. There are now more dentists with less experience within implantology and a generation shift with different expectations is coming. Clinicians are facing more complex decisions as there is an increase in patients with risk factors as well as increasing demands for shorter treatment times. Digital planning and workflows are redefining protocols and techniques. There is thus a need for objective tools to increase efficiency, and to guide and optimize the implant treatment for both complex and more straight-forward cases, making ISQ diagnostics a necessary and objective key value to help improve outcomes and quality.
