Resonance frequency analysis (RFA)Implant stabilityAnodized implant surface
Statement of problem. Resonance frequency analysis has been increasingly served as a non-invasive and objective method for clinical monitoring of implant stability. Many clinical studies must be required for standardized data using RFA. Purpose. This study was performed to evaluate RFA value changes in two anodized implant groups. Material and method. Among a total of 24 implants, twelve screw shaped implants as a test group (H2-R8.5) were manufactured, which had a pitch-height of 0.4 mm, an outer diameter of 4.3 mm, a length of 8.5 mm, and external hexa-headed, were turned from 5 mm rods of commercially pure titanium (ASTM Grade IV, Warantec Co., Seoul, Korea), and another twelve implants as a control group were Ti-Unite MK4 (diameter 4.0 mm, length 8.5 mm). Each group was installed in tibia of rabbit. Two implants were placed in each tibia (four implants per rabbit). Test two implants were inserted in right side and control two in left side. ISQ values were measured using (Integration Diagnostics Ltd. Sweden) during fixture installation, and 12 weeks later and evaluated the RFA changes. Results. Mean and SD of baseline ISQ values of test group were and for control group. Mean and SO of ISQ values 12 weeks after implant insertion were for test group and for control group. There were no statistically significant differences between groups in ISQ values after 3 months (P>0.05). From the data, RFA gains after 3 months were calculated, and there was statistically significant difference between groups (P<0.05). Conclusion. Although there were RFA changes between groups, implant stability after experimental period shows alike tendency and good bone responses.
