Volume XXX, 2021/2

As shown in a large series of researches, dental implants are generally made of titanium because this material allows a stable and functional connection between the bone and the contact surface of the implant. From the point of view of the mechanical behavior of dental implants, it was found that too large or incorrectly directed forces developed in the mastication process can change these connections at the same time as affecting the osseointegration process, compromising the stability of the implant. That is why modelling the behavior of dental implants represents a pre-analysis solution to understand the effect of the correct development of the mastication process. In the first part of the paper a series of researches are presented and their results regarding the importance and effect of the dimensions of dental implants on their behavior.
