The prerequisites of a successful dental implant are the achievement and maintenance of implant stability. Implant stability may be well-defined as the lack of clinical mobility that is also described as osseo integration. As a mechanical phenomenon, primary implant at placement is associated with quantity and quality of the local bone, the kind of implant method and placement used. Secondary implant stability is related to the increased instability attributable to the formation of bone and to remodel it at the implant tissue interface and in the neighboring bone. Several ways are there to evaluate the implant stability like the periotest, cutting resistance’s clinical measurement throughout implant placement and reverse torque test. The aim of this article is to bring to light the different techniques of determining implant stability.
