Application of Finite Element Method in Dental Implant Research
MetadataShow full item record
This article provides a review of the achievements and advancements in dental technology brought about by computer-aided design and the all powerful finite element method (FEM) of analysis. The scope of the review covers dental implants, jawbone surrounding the implant and the biomechanical implant and jawbone interaction. Prevailing assumptions made in the published finite element analysis (FEA) and their limitations are discussed in some detail which helps identify the gaps in research as well as future research direction.
