Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate stress distribution in peri-implant bone and to investigate the influence of splinting implants by finite element analysis (FEA) with in vivo loading data. The magnitude and direction of the force exerted on implants during maximal voluntary clenching of a subject were recorded with 3-D piezoelectric force transducers. FEA using in vivo loading data was conducted on splinted and non-splinted models with two implants. Overall, the splinted model reduced stress in peri-implant bone in comparison with the non-splinted model.
