Two stages of stability are in the healing phase of dental implantation, i.e., the primary and the secondary stability. The former refers to the stability immediately after implantation. The most critical occasion for achieving successful implantation occurs during the lowest initial stabilization that causes sufficient bone reconstruction to support long-term maintenance of the implant. Usually this occurs in the third or the fourth week after surgery [1]. If the primary stability is not high enough, the extra implant mobility may cause bone defects and result in implantation failed eventually. In the former studies, varied techniques, especially resonance frequency analysis (RFA), were developed for quantifying dental implant stability including experimental and numerical ways [2–4]. In terms of numerical characterization, Wang et al. [2] determined the identifiable stiffness range of interfacial tissue of dental implants by using RFA. Two implant-tissue-bone models...
