Fatigue Design of Dental Implant Assemblies: A Nominal Stress Approach
Fatigue is the most common mechanical failure type in dental implants. ISO 14801 standardizes fatigue testing of dental implants, providing the load-life curve which is most useful for comparing the fatigue behavior of ...
On the Use of a Simplified Slip Limit Equation to Predict Screw Self-Loosening of Dental Implants Subjected to External Cycling Loading
Self-loosening of the prosthetic screws is a major mechanical problem affecting roughly 10% of dental implants, according to the literature. This phenomenon may lead to micro-movements that produce crestal bone loss, ...
