Abstract

Aim All-on-four concept involves the use of four anterior dental implants in the edentulous jaw to overcome anatomic limitations of residual alveolar bone. The impact of implant thread design and diameter on the biomechanical performance of all-on-four concept is not yet fully understood. The purpose of this study was to investigate the biomechanical behavior of all-on-four concept with different combinations of thread designs and diameters through a three dimensional Finite Element Analysis.
