By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Current study results on Oral Health have been published. According to news reporting out of New Delhi, India, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Initial stability at the placement and development of osseointegration are 2 major issues for implant survival. Many of the presently used noninvasive methods of evaluating the stability of implants are highly subjective."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, "The resonance frequency analysis (RFA) device is claimed to offer a more objective means to assess implant stability. Limited information is available on the interexaminer reliability and repeatability of the RFA device, used to measure implant stability. Two blind in vivo studies were conducted using 50 implant cases. In the first clinical study, 3 investigators took implant stability quotient (ISQ) readings for each implant to check the interoperator reliability for the RFA device. In the second clinical study, implant stability was measured by the same operator using the RFA device for each implant 3 times on the same day with a 15-minute interval, to check the repeatability of the RFA device."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Within the limitations of this study, the RFA device demonstrated a high degree of interoperator reliability and repeatability."
