The ideal goal of modern dentistry is to restore the patient to normal contour, function, comfort, esthetics, speech, and health. A dentist provides restoration either by removing caries from a tooth or by replacing several teeth. Implant dentistry is unique because of its ability to achieve this goal regardless of the atrophy, disease or injury of the stomatognathic system. Endosseous dental implants are used to retain and/or support for fixed or removable prosthesis in completely or partially edentulous patients. Successful long-term results of dental implants have led to an increase in their usage in many clinical situations. Although Implantology has advanced, failures also may occur with this type of treatment. The clinical success of an implant treatment is largely determined by the manner in which the mechanical stresses are transferred from implant to surrounding bone without generating forces of magnitude that would jeopardize the longevity of implant and prostheses. The present study was done to evaluate the strain around Endosseous Threaded and Non-Threaded implant opposing maxillary natural tooth with Regular and Altered occlusion by using 3-D Finite Element Analysis.
