Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate osseointegration and bone stress resulted during the first 3 months after the installation of functional implants modified with bioactive oxide.

Methods: Several studies have investigated finite element models for dental implants; however, only a few have examined a model for the implants during different stages of osseointegration. In this study, mandible models were reconstructed using computer tomographic data, and bone qualities and stress distributions were investigated as well.

Results: Bone quality increased rapidly within the 3-month bone healing time. Data analysis indicated that the bone stresses increased with the progress of osseointegration, and the maximum stresses were obtained at the position around the first screw.

Conclusion: The results confirmed that functional films could improve the biomechanical properties of the implants and promote the initial bone stability. Furthermore, potential clinical benefit can be obtained due to the inducing superior biomechanical behavior in dental implants.
