An endosseous implant is described as osseointegrated when it is immobile in function. Objective measures of stability testing have been described. The Periotest is a commercially available device that is used for this purpose. This study was designed to measure stability of endosseous implants placed in the mandible. Implants were placed in the mandibular canine or first premolar area to support an overdenture prosthesis. Stability was evaluated through the use of a Periotest device at the… CONTINUE READING
