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. The SmartPeg is attached to the implant or abutment when a measurement is made. It is easy to mount and requires minimal space thanks to its small size. To avoid damage to the implant, the SmartPeg material is quite soft, which limits the lifetime of the threads.
