 Methods of Determining Implant Stability and Scientific Loading Criteria

.There can always be difficulties in determining the osseointegration status when an implant is to be loaded with the prosthesis. Nevertheless, it is vital to know whether the implant is stable. Research today demonstrates that implants can be subject to immediate or early loading, but there were no objective standard methods of determining implant stability which is critical to immediate or early loading.


■ Current scientific loading criteria for immediate or early loading will be presented with clinical cases and reliable scientific data such as Resonance Frequency Analysis

■ Determine impact of implant design on stability

■ Evaluation of bone density and parafunction for successful implant procedures

■ Understand loading protocols for everyday implant dentistry


Mr. Pfefer is the VP of Sales for ids for over 10 years which is the exclusive distributor of MegaGen products for North America. ​

Previously worked with IMZ, 3i, Lifecore Biomedical and Biolok which he helped divest to Healthpoint Capital and merged with Bio Horizons.
