Questmed GmbH - Test of Dental Implants

Questmed performs dynamic testing for endosseous dental implants and retention elements.
This includes testing in compliance with DIN EN ISO 14801: "Dentistry - Fatigue test for endosseous dental implants."
Before testing multiple sterilization cycles can be executed at our test lab.
Additionally we perform Ion Release and Corrosion Testing according ASTM F3306 and ISO 10271.
For magnetic attachments we perform mechanical tests according ISO 13017.
For retention elements / locator implant inserts we perform mechanical tests according ISO / WD 3843.
For rotational adaptability between implant body and implant abutment we perform mechanical tests according ISO 22683.
For dental hand torque instruments we measure the performance according ISO 11953.
For dental hand instruments we determine the resistance against autoclaving according ISO 13402.

Questmed is active committee member of the following ISO working groups:

  • ISO/TC 106 "Dentistry"
  • ISO/TC 106/SC 2/WG 24 "Mechanical retention"
  • ISO/TC 106/SC 8/WG 3 "Content of technical files"
  • ISO/TC 106/SC 8/WG 4 "Mechanical testing"
  • ISO/TC 106/SC 8/WG 7 "Evaluation of connective interfaces of dental implant assemblies"
to further develope the ISO 14801 and ISO 3843 standard.

The ISO 14801 specifies a method of dynamic loading tests for endosseous dental implants of the transmucosal type in combination with their prosthetic components. The acquired information can be used for comparing endosseous dental implants of different designs or sizes. This standard is not a test of the fundamental fatigue properties of the materials from which the endosseous implants and prosthetic components are made.
This international standard is not applicable to dental implants with endosseous lengths shorter than 8 mm nor to magnetic or frictional attachments.
While ISO 14801:2016 simulates the functional loading of an endosseous dental implant under "worst case" conditions, it is not applicable for predicting the in vivo performance of an endosseous dental implant or dental prosthesis, particularly if multiple endosseous dental implants are used for a dental prosthesis.
