Abstract

This study aims to analyze the functional contact pressure induced by Removable Partial Denture (RPD) by using a 3D finite element (FE) model constructed based on patient specific CT scans. This model was validated against the in vivo test results. The outcomes demonstrate that the finite element simulation has the capability of quantifying localized stress distribution in a complicated denture-mucosa contact problem, with a reasonable matching to clinical measurements of occlusal force and pressure distribution. The methodology is of considerable clinical implication to improve the long term outcomes of the denture treatment.
