PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of different levels of vertical misfit between implant and bar framework on distribution of static stresses in an overdenture-retaining bar system using finite element analysis. MATERIAL AND METHODS A 3D finite element model (11,718 elements and 21,625 nodes) was created and included two titanium implants and a bar framework placed in the medial region of the anterior part of a severely reabsorbed-jaw. All materials were presumed to be linear elastic… CONTINUE READING
