The influence of occlusal surface design on the longitudinal success of implant treatment is believed to be significant, but it is not well understood. It has been suggested that limiting lateral forces by reducing cuspal inclination is beneficial in the maintenance and preservation of osseointegration. This study used a method to apply quantified vertical forces to a food substance and record the forces and strain transmitted through cusped 33-degree and cuspless 0-degree occlusal design… CONTINUE READING
