Biomechanical and occlusal considerations for implant restorations



Biomechanical and occlusal considerations for implant restorations: How to design a functionally successful implant prosthesis


This course analyzes some aspects of the planning and fabrication of an implant prostheses that may have a role in the longevity of the treatment. There are biomechanical variables such as the number and distribution of the implants, implant length, whether adjacent implants should be splinted or not, when cantilevers are acceptable and how long can they be. And, then, there are occlusal variables such as the width of the occlusal table, occlusal morphology, occlusal schemes for partially and for fully edentulous patients, the role of the antagonist dentition (full denture vs. natural dentition or implant “dentition”), and the response to dynamic and static forces. These topics are discussed from a clinical standpoint with the aim of giving the participant practical guidelines. At the same time, references to the published literature are made in order to draw conclusions that may be also as reliable as possible.
