An experiment was conducted on five crab-eating monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) in which overload with no inflammation in the peri-implant tissues was modeled. Two osseointegrated implants were placed into each monkey. After 3 months of osseointegration, superstructures that were excessive by about 100 microns were mounted on the implants, and a traumatic occlusal force was experimentally delivered to its implant… CONTINUE READING
