Minimizing biomechanical overload in implant prostheses: a computerized aid to design.

Abstract

Implant-supported prostheses must be able to withstand the load capabilities of individual patients to overload them. The gold alloy screw in the Brånemark system is by intention the weakest component. Therefore, if cantilever lengths can be designed so that occlusal forces distributed to individual fixtures are limited to the gold screws' ability to accept… (More)
