The clinical effects of insertion torque for implants placed in healed ridges: A two-year randomized controlled clinical trial Jan 18, 2017 | DT Science

The clinical effects of insertion torque for implants placed in healed ridges: A two-year randomized controlled clinical trial

Several factors are involved in the achievement of implant primary stability, such as the insertion torque, the implant’s macrogeometry, the surgical technique, and the bone quality and quantity. Implant primary stability is considered one of the key factors for osseointegration and is associated with insertion torque. Several studies have suggested that insertion torque values of 25–45 N cm could prevent micromovements that could impair the bone healing around the implants. The aim of the present ...

Implant treatment plan should be adapted for smokers, research suggests

XI’AN, China: A Chinese study comparing implant stability and peri-implant tissue response in heavy smokers and non-smokers has found that smoking did not affect the overall success of implant surgery, as all implants achieved osseointegration without complications at least by the end of the 12th week after placement. However, smoking did cause the bone around the implants to heal more slowly; thus, implants began to osseointegrate considerably later than in the non-smoking group.
