PURPOSE There is no clear evidence of the factors that could improve implant biomechanics in the posterior maxilla. Thus, a finite element analysis was performed to investigate the effect of maxillary cortical bone thickness, implant design and diameter on stress around implants. METHODS A total of 12 models of the posterior maxilla with implant were… CONTINUE READING
