NUMERICAL SIMULATIONS OF STATIC STRENGTH OF NOVEL DENTAL IMPLANTS

Abstract


It is important to know the mechanical and micromechanical characteristics of conventional dental implants in order to design and develop novel dental implants and surface treatments that ensure a good biomechanical stability and almost fully replace the biological tissue. A successful integration of the implant depends on its chemical, mechanical and physical properties and the quality of the bone tissue. Considering these facts, we developed two novel variants of dental implant stems with an anti-rotational geometrical solution. On these variants, we have then performed numerical analyses of static strength. Outcomes of simulations vary depending on the type of the implant and load mode.
