Oct 2015 Using PenguinRFA with Osstell® Smartpegs®

The introduction of the PenguinRFA and MulTipegTM technique at the EAO meeting in Stockholm in September has attracted great interest from the dental implant community. One common question is if the instrument can be used together with SmartPegs® from Osstell®. The answer is yes, although the measurements need to be adjusted according to this table. This is because the MulTipegTM and the Smartpeg® are made from different materials (titanium vs aluminum) and calibrated in different ways. PenguinRFA used with MulTipegsTM gives of course the same ISQ values as Osstell® instruments with Smartpegs®.
