Reverse torque failure of screw-shaped implants in baboons: baseline data for abutment torque application.

Abstract

Torque failure for endosseous implants has been used as a biomechanical measure of anchorage, though the significance of such data is not known. A practical understanding of the resistance to torque failure of implant-tissue interfaces at stage 2 surgery would help in assigning torque levels for implant abutment-screw fastening. The purpose of this study… (More)
