Dental implant failure is mainly the consequence of bone loss at peri-implant area. It usually begins in crestal bone. Due to this gradual loss, implants cannot withstand functional force without bone overload, which promotes complementary loss. As a result, implant lifetime is significantly decreased. To estimate implant success prognosis, taking into(More)
BACKGROUND For dental implant success, experimentally established thresholds should limit bone stresses and strains. From these metrics, the ultimate functional load, which determines the implant load-carrying capacity, can be calculated. Obviously, its decrease due to bone loss shortens implant service life. A comparison of how bone loss affects the(More)
