Finite element analysis of a new system (IL) for supporting an implant-retained cantilever prosthesis.


A new system (the IL system) for supporting the distal extension of a cantilevered prosthesis is designed from a short implant and a special ball-type attachment. The finite element method was employed to analyze this system and the surrounding bone, as well as a conventional prosthesis, in two dimensions. Effective and maximum stresses in tension and… (More)
