On October 8, 2010, the 2nd International ISQ Symposium was held. The symposium focused on the use of the ISQ scale in daily clinical practice, as presented by four prominent speakers, Prof. Daniel Buser, Dr. Jay Malmquist, Dr. Paul Rosen, and Dr. Pär-Olov Östman. They shared their experience of how to interpret ISQ values, measured by Osstell instruments, in different clinical situations. Prof. Lars Sennerby moderated the highly successful symposium, which attracted almost 400 participants from all over the world. The symposium was held in cooperation with the EAO (European Association of Osseointegration) and took place at the annual meeting in Glasgow.
The symposium also saw the launch of the ISQ Scientific & Clinical Forum, providing a common forum for expanding knowledge and extending research about implant stability based on the universal ISQ scale. The ISQ Forum is open to all academics and clinicians around the world active in the field of dental implantology. The website, www.isqforum.com, serves as a platform for interaction and a source of knowledge for the ISQ Forum. The symposium was organized by the ISQ Forum, with Osstell as the sponsor.
“I am happy that such distinguished and experienced clinicians contributed at this year’s ISQ Symposium and made it a definitive success. It shows how relevant the subject is, and that more and more people are realizing the benefits of working with objective measurements of implant stability in dental treatment. Several of the presentations included clear clinical guidelines, and I think the information provided will prove most helpful to many dental professionals active in the field of implant dentistry,” said Jonas Ohlsson, President and Managing Director of Osstell.

Osstell AB, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, specializes in instruments for analyzing dental implant stability. The company’s latest product, Osstell ISQ, measures the stability of implants in an objective, non-invasive manner using the universal ISQ scale (Implant Stability Quotient). The ISQ values help dentists determine the optimal time to load each implant. Also, by detecting decreasing stability, Osstell ISQ can help prevent failure caused by premature loading. Over 248 studies and ten years of clinical experience around the world confirm the usefulness of Osstell ISQ for dentists and surgeons. Osstell is the sponsor of the ISQ Scientific & Clinical Forum. www.osstell.com
