OBJECTIVES A validated numerical model for stress/strain predictions is essential in understanding the biomechanical behavior of implant-supported dental prostheses. The digital image correlation (DIC) method for full-field strain measurement was compared with finite element analysis (FEA) in assessing bone strain induced by implants. METHODS An epoxy(More)
The lateralization of the inferior alveolar nerve (LIAN) and short implants are efficient options for rehabilitation of the posterior atrophic mandible. However, the loss of bone leads to prosthesis with greater height and lever effect that in turn can have different impact on treatments. Through the finite element method, the present study tests the(More)
There are difficulties for dental implant use in posterior mandible when there is little bone height for implant placement. Among the treatment alternatives available, there is no direct comparison between short implants and conventional implants placed with lateralization of the inferior alveolar nerve. The present study aimed to comparatively evaluate the(More)
