abstract

Osseointegrated dental implants are deficient in natural periodontal ligaments. It may therefore, disrupts the natural function of implant and leads to excessive stress and strain in jaw bone. Our new proposed implant has the nonlinear internal component which imitates periodontal ligaments function. A nonlinear finite element analysis developed to investigate the efficiency of utilizing this nonlinear internal layer for three conditions of bone implant interface conditions under vertical and horizontal loading conditions. Our results so far indicate that the use of a class of material exhibiting incompressible hyperelastic behaviour as a internal layer can reduce the peak stress deduced from different loads. The mobility of implant supported prosthesis is similar to that of natural tooth and micromotion at the bone-implant interface is decreased for both delayed and immediately loading treatment.
