PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate whether systematic modifications of occlusal features or food consistency are suitable to reduce the loading of implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten healthy subjects, each of whom had a gap in the chewing center (second premolar or first molar) of one lateral dental arch, were provided with fixed partial dentures (FPD) on two ITI implants. Strain gauges attached to the abutments recorded forces in three dimensions. In each person, the original… Expand
