The Five-Thread Rule: A New Guideline for Predicting Primary Stability With Dental Implants

Best practices exist for sizing and positioning dental implants but too few guidelines are designed to aide clinicians in predicting primary implant stability in healed or fresh extraction sites. Predicting an implant’s likelihood of surgical success is significant for two reasons: 1. It determines the treatment options—if the conditions for a successful placement do not exist, alternative treatment plans, such as site development, should be considered; 2. Successful prediction of a surgical outcome maintains a good doctor-patient relationship.
