Dr. Charles D. Schlesinger discusses instrumentation that is more predictable and safe during the healing process
For years and for most practitioners, torque has been the gold standard for determining the stability of an implant. It has, and is, used to determine primary stability, integrated stability, and can be used to determine the minimum threshold when immediately loading dental implants.
