This in vivo pilot methodologic study used 3 patients to investigate load transfer in mandibular implant-retained overdentures anchored in 2 different ways: allowing (gap condition) and counteracting (contact condition) free rotation. Load cells and strain-gauged abutments were used to evaluate occlusal load, load transmitted to the nonworking-side mucosa, and stress on the working-side abutment, in both contact and gap conditions. The occlusal load was reduced and load was shifted from… CONTINUE READING
