Implant stability fundamentals
We’ve compiled resources that cover the fundamentals of implant diagnosis, implant stability and osseointegration.
When measuring implant stability with Osstell, you will get an objective value, making implant treatments predictable – even for patients with risk factors. It tells you when an implant is ready for loading.

Back by more than 880 scientific studies, our method is based on resonance frequency analysis (RFA) to determine whether or not an implant is stable enough. The result is presented as an ISQ value of 1-100. The higher the ISQ, the more stable the implant.
Scientific Database: over 880 articles related to ISQ/RFA.

Torque is sometimes used to describe the stability of an implant. However, torque does not necessarily correlate to implant stability. Torque and ISQ are two different measurements, but they complement each other. In this section, learn how:

All clinicians have faced this question: “Is the implant failing?”
Measuring implant stability helps prevent failures and related costs. In this section, learn how experts use Osstell to manage the risk of implant failures:

The SmartPeg is used together with the measurement instruments Osstell IDx or Osstell ISQ. Both instruments measure the resonance frequency of a SmartPeg, when it is attached to an implant.
