Abstract: Finite element models were created to study the stress and strain distribution around a solitary Brånemark implant. The influence of a number of clinically relevant parameters was examined: bone-implant interface (fixed bond versus frictionless free contact), bone elastic properties, unicortical versus bicortical implant fixation and the presence of a lamina dura. Bone loading patterns in the vicinity of the implant seem to be very sensitive to these parameters. Hence they should be integrated correctly in numerical models of in vivo behaviour of oral implants. This necessitates the creation of patient-dependent finite element models.
