High torque on dental implants during placement

Wheaton cosmetic dentist Bryan Bauer

High torque does not impact success of dental implant

High insertion torque for dental implant is >50Ncm

Cassetta JOMI 2022 High implant torque (>50Ncm) does not result in greater stability.

Li JOMI 2015 – Meta-analysis – Marginal bone loss shows no correlation to conventional and high torque for dental implant

High torque in dense bone no impact on failure, better for initial stability Trisi JOMI 2011

Lemos JPD 2021 finds similar results as previous studies. The systemic review shows high insertion torque does not impact implant survival or marginal bone loss.
