1.Titanium grade: Only titanium grade 5 is positively considered due to its superior properties compared to lower grade titanium.(1 Point)
2.Outside threads: Absence of outside threads on the implant body reduces surface area and results in decreased initial stability.(1 Point)
3.Surface treatment: Almost any surface treatment like grit blasting and acid etching will result in improved osseointegration compared to a plain machined surface.(1 Point)
4.Body geometry: A parallel  walled body with a taper toward the apex will allow greater freedom in placement of the implant in limited space situations. (1 Point)
5.Length: Several lengths of implants should be offered to take advantage of available bone height.(1 Point)
6.Diameter: Multiple diameters should be offered to accommodate restoration size and increase surface area. (1 Point)
7.Abutment indexing: Aids as a anti rotational feature and eases relating the implant position to the laboratory and abutment position from laboratory to patient situation. (1 Point)
8.Abutment screw: Torque should be 30N-cm or greater to securely fasten the abutment to the implant. The screw also needs to be replaceable in case of screw failure. (2 Points)
9.Abutment choice: A extensive selection of stock titanium abutments, UCLA's and stock zirconia abutments will ensure cost effectiveness and exceptional esthetics for a wide range of restorative options.(1 Point)
