Finite element analysis of the mechanical behavior of a partially edentulous mandible as a function of cancellous bone density


Methods: A 3D finite element method was used to assess the model of a partially edentulous mandible, Kennedy Class I, with dental implants placed at the region of teeth 33 and 43. The geometric solid model was built from CT-scan images and prototyping. In the discrete model a parametric analysis was performed to analyze the influence of cancellous bone… (More)
