The aim of this study was to examine the primary stabilization of different vertically impacted bone implants. Implant stability was measured by resonance frequency analysis. Forty-five dental implants were used and divided into three groups. Group 1 was placed 4 mm (1/3 impacted), Group 2 was placed 8 mm (2/3 impacted), and Group 3 was placed 12 mm (fully impacted). Implant stability quotient values were measured on the longitudinal and transversal axis by two independent researchers. The fully-impacted group showed the significantly highest value among the groups (p < 0.05). There were statistically varying implant-stability quotient values between researchers. None of the 1/3 impacted implants’ value reached a 70 implant-stability quotient value.
