Osstell launches new Beacon™

Osstell, the developer of the ISQ diagnostic technology (Implant Stability Quotient), has launched its next leap in the evolution of implant diagnostic instrumentation: The Osstell Beacon, an innovative and highly intuitive tool designed to guide implant treatments for more predictable results. Osstell's patented technology allow clinicians working with implants to make decisions based on reliable and objective stability values (ISQ Values) when determining the course of treatment for each patient. The procedure can be used to measure primary implant stability, observe osseointegration based on secondary stability readings and determine the best possible time for loading the implant, thereby helping to prevent failures, shortening healing time and ensuring high quality.


The ISQ Value

ISQ measurements should be performed at implant placement and before the implant is loaded or the abutment is connected. After each measurement, the ISQ values are recorded and used as the baseline for the next measurement performed. A change in the ISQ value reflects a change in implant stability. In general, an increase in ISQ values from one measurement time to the next indicates a progression towards higher implant stability while a decrease in ISQ values indicates a loss in stability and, possibly, implant failure. A stable ISQ value would indicate no change in stability.

An implant can also have different stability in different directions. The stability of the implant is dependent of the surrounding bone configuration. To find the lowest stability (lowest ISQ value) it is recommended to measure from two different directions. The lowest stability is in most cases found in the buccal-lingual direction. The highest stability is in most cases found in the mesial-distal direction.

The Osstell Connect online service is also available through which you can analyse your data and get relevant insights of your implant treatment performance.
