Treatment guidelines

Hard tissue and bone quality

Key points

  • Jaw bone quality is difficult to define. It is merely described in quantitative measures.
  • Bone quality/bone hardness should preferably be identified for each individual implant site and not as one given value for the entire jaw.
  • Change of jaw bone quality may be load- and/or age-related.
