Delicacy in the drilling sequence


Primary stability

Influence on early osseointegration of dental implants insalled with a two different drilling protocols: a histomorphometric study in rabit.

The ISQ values were statistically significant different between groups at day 0 (control: (control: 69.65; test 64,81); and after two weeks (control: 77.93; test:74) However, after 4 and 8 weeks the results were similar.

The mean ISQ value for 3.75 and 4.25 mm diameter implants was 78.4 ± 5.46 y 80.83 ± 5.35 respectively, at the time of the implant placement; and 76.68 ± 4.34 y 78.22 ± 6.87 respectively at the second surgical stage.
