Effect of Abutment and Implant Shapes on Stresses in Dental Applications Using Fem
AbstractIn this study, the effect of abutment and implant shapes on stresses in dental applications was investigated, numerically. During the numerical analysis, finite element method (FEM) was used due to a powerful stress analysis method. The three different abutment-implant systems based on producing from different commercial firms were modeled. The Nextengine and Rhinoceros programs were used for three dimensional tooth scan and creation of the solid models. Additionally, Algor Fenpro analysis program was used for three dimensional stress analyses. According to obtained results, the Von Mises stress distributions on abutment, implant and cortical bone are affected from abutment and implant shapes, clearly. If it is possible, the using of any hole in the implant should not be used. Additionally, the bigger collars on the abutment provide to reduce of Von Mises stresses.
