Comparison of Penguin RFA & Penguin II Implant Stability Monitors
October 12, 2022
Aseptico has recently launched the all-new Penguin II, the latest generation dental implant stability monitor. The Penguin II is a highly sophisticated Resonance Frequency Analysis (RFA) instrument for monitoring the osseointegration of dental implants using the clinically-proven ISQ Scale. While boasting the same market-setting technology as its predecessor, the Penguin RFA, the Penguin II features some key differences.
Penguin RFA and Penguin II share these Important Qualities
Both Penguin RFA and Penguin II provide accurate, reliable measurement of dental implant stability via RFA measurement methodology, and either is an excellent choice for any dentist placing or restoring dental implants. Both instruments utilize cost-effective MulTipegs, which are available for all major implant systems and are autoclavable for up to 20 uses, ensuring the best return on investment in the industry.
New, Evolved Design for the Penguin II
The Penguin II has an updated aesthetic with important clinical purpose. New flatter sides bring increased comfort, surer grip, and better leverage when in the hand. An all new LED display screen is more sleekly integrated into the design, increasing readability. Even with a new design, the Penguin II is easily recognizable as a member of the Penguin family.
Penguin II Battery is both Rechargeable & Replacable
Perhaps the biggest departure between the Penguin RFA and the Penguin II is the new swappable battery pack. While the Penguin RFA features a durable, rechargeable battery, it is not user-replaceable. The Penguin II features a sleek, free-standing vertical charging stand, allowing for easy placement and wireless charging of the device. With the new Penguin II, when the battery reaches the end of its life, it can be replaced in the office.
About the ISQ Scale
Dental implant stability can be measured via resonance frequency analysis and presented as an ISQ (Implant Stability Quotient) value. The measurement scale, which ranges from 1 to 99, is a scientifically-backed reference point to support the clinician’s decision of when to restore, whether at primary insertion or over time, depending on the unique circumstances of each case.
Penguin Reduces the Risk of Dental Implant Failure
Whether you select the Penguin RFA or the new Penguin II implant stability monitor for your dental practice, you can rest assured that you are making an excellent investment for your practice, your patients, and your own peace of mind. Using Penguin RFA technology and the ISQ measurement scale helps dentists quickly determine a measurement of implant stability, helping support the decision of when to load the dental implant.
