A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. Success or failure of depends on the health of the person receiving the treatment, drugs which affect the chances of osseointegration, and the health of the tissues in the mouth. The amount of stress that will be put on the implant and fixture during normal function is also evaluated. Planning the position and number of implants is key to the long-term health of the prosthetic since biomechanical forces created during chewing can be significant.
This paper focuses on study of impact of parameters like depth, pitch and thickness of the implant profile on stress intensity. The mechanical aspects of the implant are studied through analysis. The paper includes selection of implant, Finite element analysis to find stress intensity and representation of effect of parameters on the value of stress intensity using MINITAB software.
The aim is to study the effect of variation of various parameters on the stress intensity on the bones. This aim is to be achieved by varying the mechanical parameters (depth, pitch and thickness) of the dental implant and performing static stress FEA analysis. The effect is studied, and results are interpreted and analyzed by using MINITAB software.
