Effect of dental implant diameter on fatigue performance. Part I: mechanical behavior.


AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of the implants' diameter on the mechanical function and load-fatigue performance of dental implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three groups of implants with different diameters (3.3 mm, 3.75 mm and 5 mm), were tested under static and cyclic compressive loading. A total number of 15 implants for the… (More)
