Background: Replacement of missing teeth with dental implants represents one of the most successful treatment modalities in modern dentistry. Patients desire for a shorter treatment time has made clinicians to attempt loading implants early or immediately after placement. The primary stability is determined by density and mechanical properties of the bone, the implant design, edentulous site complications, and the surgical technique.Various researchers have tried to achieve faster osseointegration static magnetic field is one of them. So the aim of this study was to investigate whether Static magnetic field created by using safer magnets was useful to promote osseointegration. Materials and Methods: Subjects were selected according to the predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria in two groups (20 in each group). Conventional implant placement protocol was used and implant placement was performed and grafting was done. Magnetic healing cap was used in group I and conventional healing cap in group II. Implant stability assessment using radio frequency analyser was assessed at 2, 3 and 4 months on interval. Result: Mann-Whitney U test revealed that there was significant difference was observed between the groups I and II at 2, 3 and 4 months of interval (P < 0.001). Static magnetic field improve osseointegration in group I as compared to group II. Conclusion: The present double-blinded RCT showed significantly improved implant stability and osseointegration in implants which were stimulated by static magnetic field by using magnetic healing cap as compared to implants with conventional healing cap.
