The osseointegration of dental implant is influenced by many factors such as surface geometry, loading and the amount of bone. Thus, stability of the dental implant should be checked periodically. In order to test the stability of dental implant by using resonance frequency analysis, we designed a structure of transducers and fabricated a piezoelectric devices. Using finite element analysis, the thickness and length of piezoelectric device and transducers were tailorized and the optimized frequency of 10 kHz was obtained. The resonance frequency from simulation analysis and evaluation was estimated to be similar as 10 kHz. The osseointegration was further enhanced with increasing frequency from the evaluation result of the finite element analysis.
