In a combined in vitro and in vivo study strain gauges were used to register the deformation in two terminal implant abutment cylinders, when connecting three different prosthetic appliances. The prosthetic constructions were placed on the abutments and fastened in vitro and in vivo by using different torque sequences. Furthermore, in the in vitro situation the three medial abutments were replaced by abutments which were 100 microns shorter. The results show that even if the prosthetic… CONTINUE READING
