Our Implantology Clinic purchases an Osstell Mentor, which is an ingenious device made in Sweden, which takes the guesswork out of assessing whether or not a Dental Implant has integrated well with the bone. A reading of below 60 means that further integration time is required. A reading over 70 means that the Osseo-integration process is complete, and the crown can safely be placed on the implant, and the implant ‘loaded’ (used as a normal tooth).
It uses the principle of a tuning fork, but with the sophisticated electronic sensing device it can detect the slightest vibration, thereby measuring the bond between an implant and bone tissue. The principle is simple, but the invention is ingenious.
