Resonance frequency analysis (RFA) is a non-invasive method for evaluating the osseointegration of two-piece dental implants. Since its presentation in mid-1990’s by Meredith et al, RFA has been used extensively to evaluate and monitor the osseointegration of dental implants. This presentation will focus on the research behind the technology, and the clinical applications of RFA as it applies to determining both surgical and restorative protocols for single unit, multi-unit and full arch dental implant rehabilitation. I this presentation, the preliminary findings of an ongoing multi-center international clinical research project involving resonance frequency analysis and two-piece ceramic dental implants will be presented.
