Abstract

The implant primary stability is a fundamental condition for avoiding implant micro-motions that might result in fibrous encapsulation; its achievement is facilitated by macro- and micro-geometry of the implant, and by the bone density and architecture at the intended implant site. The aim was to evaluate an osteocondensing drilling protocol for dental implant positioning compared to standard protocol on polyurethane block. A total of 40 implants, 20 for each osteocondensing group (Test) and 20 for standard drilling group (Control), were positioned. Insertion torque (IT), removal torque (RT), and Periotest were measured. A IT, RT, and Periotest significant difference was present in favor of the implant osteocondensing protocol. The results suggested that osteocondensing protocol represents a useful technique for implant placement in poor density bone.
