BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the stress distribution in a mandibular bone with an implant-supported overdenture by a biological-data-based finite element analysis (FEA) utilizing personal CT images and in vivo loading data, and to evaluate the influence of the number and alignment of implants and bone conditions on the stress in peri-implant(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate stress distribution in peri-implant bone and to investigate the influence of splinting implants by finite element analysis (FEA) with in vivo loading data. The magnitude and direction of the force exerted on implants during maximal voluntary clenching of a subject were recorded with 3-D piezoelectric force transducers.(More)
The purpose of this in vivo study was to evaluate the biomechanical effects of splinting of implant-supported superstructures using piezoelectric transducers to measure the three-dimensional forces exerted on implants supporting fixed superstructures. Measuring devices were set into the implant fixtures at the mandibular right second premolar and first(More)
INTRODUCTION The mechanisms by which the loads exerted on implants that support prostheses are modulated during mastication remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of food texture on 3-dimensional loads measured at a single implant using a piezoelectric transducer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two subjects participated in this(More)
