Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) identify different methods of assessing implant primary stability; 2) discuss the practical differences between these methods; 3) assess the most appropriate loading protocols based on the assessment of implant primary stability; 4) discuss the rationale behind different methods of primary stability measurement; 5) select the appropriate treatment plan with different primary stability thresholds; and 6) navigate through the different dedicated hardware and software.
