INTRODUCTION: Dental implants are the result of the mechanical engagement with the cortical bone, while the secondary stability biologically indicates stability through osseointegration through the production of bones and the remodelling of the cancelluos bone. Osseodensification is an innovative biomechanical technique to prepare the site. It uses Densifying Burs to produce low plastic deformation owing to its non-removal densifying method of site preparation, Preserving the bone of the host site enhancement.
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the osseodensification (OD) technique used in implant site preparation by using the newly designed burs (Densah burs), and its effect on enhancing implant primary and secondary stability.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: 20 dental implants were inserted in 10 patients; one implant was implanted on each patient using an implant using the new osseodensification approach and one implant utilising the standard post-maxillary boiling technique. Osstell was used in measuring resonance frequency (ISQ-scale) which is used to determine the amount of implant stability.
RESULTS: The results showed a significant improvement in both primary and secondary stability using densah burs.
Conclusion: Densah burs produce better bone quality around the implant than conventional drills, and therefore, Primary and secondary stability improvement is taking place.
