Dental implant treatments are safe. More than 90% are successful. But that’s not good enough. Because a failed dental implant can be agonizing for everyone involved. With today’s techniques, treatment times and opportunities for patients with risk factors have improved significantly. But correctly assessing implant stability and osseointegration is still a challenge.
That’s where Osstell comes in.
Osstell helps you to objectively and non-invasively determine implant stability and to assess the progress of osseointegration – without jeopardizing the healing process.
Our method eliminates chance. When measuring the implant stability, you will get an objective value, making the implant treatment more predictable - even for patients with risk factors.
Immediate loading is becoming more and more common. Patients want results fast. With Osstell, you only wait as long as needed.
Backed by more than 1000 scientific studies, our method is based on 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.

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 SmartPegs are single patient use items. To avoid damage to the implant, the SmartPeg material is quite soft, which limits the lifetime of the threads.

The Osstell ISQ Scale
ISQ, or Implant Stability Quotient, is a scale from 1 to 100 and is a measure of the stability of an implant. The ISQ scale has a non-linear correlation to micro mobility. With more than 1000 scientific references, we now know that high stability means >70 ISQ, between 60-69 is medium stability and < 60 ISQ is considered as low stability.
The Technique Behind Osstell
Osstell's patented technology uses Resonance Frequency Analysis (RFA) that measures the frequency with which a device vibrates. By comparing resonance frequencies, the stability of a dental implant can be determined as the resonance frequency changes with different stabilities.
How ISQ Correlates to Torque
Torque is sometimes used to describe the stability of an implant. However, torque does not necessarily correlate to implant stability. Torque measures the rotational friction between the implant and the bone combined with the force required to cut the bone if that is the case, and the pressure force from the surrounding bone.
