OBJECTIVE We compared the performance of damping capacity assessment (Periotest device) to resonance frequency analysis (Osstell device) in the assessment of peri-implant bone loss in an in vitro experiment. MATERIAL AND METHODS Screw-type oral implants were polymerized into acrylic blocks. Peri-implant bone loss was simulated by successively removing… CONTINUE READING
