The success of dental implantation is connected with the so-called implant primary stability, a synonym for the implant anchoring inside the bone. The primary stability is related to the applied peak torque to the implant during the insertion process. This work simulates the process of insertion of a typical commercial implant into the jaw bone (mandible)(More)
Dental implants interact with the jawbone through their common interface. While the implant is an inert structure, the jawbone is a living one that reacts to mechanical stimuli. Setting aside mechanical failure considerations of the implant, the bone is the main component to be addressed. With most failure criteria being expressed in terms of stress or(More)
BACKGROUND Stress shielding considerations suggest that the dental implant material's compliance should be matched to that of the host bone. However, this belief has not been confirmed from a general perspective, either clinically or numerically. PURPOSE To characterize the influence of the implant stiffness on its functionality using the failure envelope(More)
