Parts have complex geometries are easily produced by
additive manufacturing method. This practicality in production carries dental
implant designs to a very advanced level. The possibilities of the digital age
with additive manufacturing bring different perspectives to the search for
economical solutions in dental implant design and production. Geometries which
have significant potentials to be able to apply to the designs allows
researchers to make optimum improvements. Solid dental implants produced from
biocompatible materials are placed in the jawbone to support dental prostheses.
The alveolar bone located on the jawbone is a living tissue that can
continuously regulate itself in response to external physiological and
mechanical loads, surrounds the tooth root and fixes it in place. Resorption
(resorption) can occur in the alveolar bone due to hereditary factors,
insufficient oral care, inflammation and external variable load factors.
Resorbed jawbone can cause orthopedic problems such as implant loosening. In
this study, a new implant design has been studied in order to minimize bone
resorptions caused by mechanical load and complications from the implant.
Literature studies support the porous structures to be efficient for bone
growth and regeneration in vivo conditions. The porous structure is used to
ensure the living bone tissue to be able to grow spirally into the implant in
implant design. This porous structure has been optimized with the lattice
structure oriented topological approach and the mechanical strength of the
implant has been controlled. Problems such as boundary conditions of complex
geometries, loadings and material behavior are solved by the finite element
