OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of the magnitude of immediate loading on peri-implant bone in an animal model of dental implantation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eight weeks after the extraction of maxillary and mandibular premolars, three implants were inserted bilaterally in the mandibles of six Beagle dogs. One implant(More)
This article reviews epidemiologic studies and basic researches concerning the mechanical risk factors that cause overload in implant occlusion. When natural teeth are adjacent to an implant, occlusal contact on the implant prosthesis requires a reduced initial mechanical load on the implant. This is called the implant-protected occlusion concept. However,(More)
Stress distribution in peri-implant bone in an edentulous maxilla following delayed and immediate loading implant and the effect of implant length on the maximum stress were evaluated by using two kinds of finite element analyses. A threaded implant was loaded with a 100 N vertical force, either immediately or delayed, and examined by finite element(More)
