Abstract

The complexity of the forces which act on the dental implant, in the stomathognatic system environment can have miscellaneous consequences on the periimplantar tissues, the implant length and diameter being mainly considered critical factors in achieving and maintaining osseointegration in optimal parameters. The finite element analysis technique purpose is to reveal the influence of the geometrical parameters and to establish which one ensures the most proper distribution of the stress over the implant-bone surface.The simulation was realized for cylindrical, solid and non-threaded implants made of titan. I have chosen three different lengths for the embeded endosseous implant and three different diameters The finite element technique indicates a more effective impact of the diameter in reducing the effects of the masticatory forces applied comparing to the length of the implant.
