This study evaluates mechanical behavior of retention systems that have been used in craniofacial osseointegration. A loading/measuring apparatus was custom designed and constructed. Test bases that represented a typical auricular situation were constructed. These bases allowed for three points of retention. Jigs that could be reproducibly positioned(More)
In a combined in vitro and in vivo study strain gauges were used to register the deformation in two terminal implant abutment cylinders, when connecting three different prosthetic appliances. The prosthetic constructions were placed on the abutments and fastened in vitro and in vivo by using different torque sequences. Furthermore, in the in vitro situation(More)
