Introduction
  • Finite element analysis (FEA) has been used
    extensively to predict the biomechanical
    performance of various dental implant designs as
    well as the effect of clinical factors on implant
    success.
  • By understanding the basic theory, method,
    application, and limitations of FEA in implant
    dentistry, the clinician will be better equipped
    to interpret results of FEA studies and
    extrapolate these results to clinical situations.
  • This article reviews the current status of FEA
    applications in implant dentistry and discusses
    findings from FEA studies in relation to the
    boneimplant interface, the implant-prosthesis
    connection, and multiple-implant prostheses

What Are Dental Implants?
  • Dental implants are replacement dental roots.
  • The implants give the solid base for fixed or
    permanent or removable replacement teeth that are
    formed to match the natural teeth.
  • The success rates of dental implants vary,
    depending on where in the jaw the implants are
    placed, but, in general, dental implants have a
    success rate of up to 98. With proper care (see
    below), implants can last a lifetime.

Steps in the process of Dental Implants
  • The first step in the dental
  • implantation process is the
  • development of an individ-
  • ualized treatment plan.
  • The plan meets your specific
  • needs and is prepared by a team
  • of specially trained and experienced
  • professionals in oral surgery and
  • restorative dentistry.
  • This team approach offers coordinated care based
    on the implant option that works best for you.
  • Then, the dental root implant, which is a small
    titanium post, is placed in the bone socket of
    the missing tooth.

  • As the jaw heals, it pushes around the implanted
    metal pole, anchoring safely in the jaw.
  • The healing process can take six to 12 weeks.
  • Once the implant has glued to the jaw, a small
    connector post called a stop is attached to
    the post to securely hold the new tooth.
  • To make the new tooth or new teeth, your dentist
    makes impressions of your teeth and creates a
    pattern of your bite (which captures all your
    teeth, their type, and arrangement). The new
    tooth or new teeth are based on this model.
  • A replacement tooth called the crown is then
    fixed to the stop.
  • Instead of one or more individual crowns, some
    patients may have attachments placed on the
    implant that retains and support a removable
    prosthesis.
  • Your dentist will also match the color of the new
    teeth to your natural teeth.
  • Because the implant is secured in the jaw, the
    replacement teeth look, feel and function as your
    own natural teeth.
