A New Approach to Evaluate the Biomechanical Characteristics of Osseointegrated Dental Implants

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Tooth loss is a common pathology that affects many people. Dental osseointegrated implants are the ideal solution to restore normal functionality in partially or completely edentulous patients. The not perfect osseointegration and the fixture fracture are the main causes of failure for these kinds of implant. To avoid these drawbacks, several studies have been conducted to analyse the behaviour of dental implants.Aim of this work is to analyse the biomechanical behaviour of three different endosseous dental implants. For this purpose, a new numerical model has been developed to simulate different levels of osseointegration and to evaluate the stress values on the bone at different times. In this way, it can be investigated the possibility of anticipating the use of dental implants that usually is delayed three months after surgery. Obtained results confirm the validity of the proposed approach and can provide useful guidelines for dentists.
