Abstract

Dental implants restorations basically include four parts: implant, abutment, metal framework, and crown. In this common kind of restoration, crown is cemented to metal framework. However, in this research a novel method of design of dental implant is presented which includes only two components: Integrated implant, and Crown. The new designed is based on an integrated implant which enables dentist to fit the crown by a snap-fit ring instantly. In order to carry out stress analysis, the finite element method (FEM) is applied on implant and bones to verify different loading conditions. The results of FEM are presented and proved to satisfy different loading conditions successfully.
