Examination of the stresses of the implants applied to the atrophic edentulous maxilla on the maxillary bone
Aim: In advanced atrophy of the posterior maxilla, applied zygoma implants increase the success of the surgical procedure by reducing morbidity and procedure time. In our study, using tomographic records, a model with posterior atrophy was obtained in a computer environment, and zygomatic and dental implants in different numbers and localizations were applied to this model. The aim of our study was to choose the most accurate surgical planning according to the stresses arising from the applied forces.
Methodology: In our study, one zygoma implant on the right and left in Group 1, two zygoma implants in Group 2, one zygoma implant in Group 3 and one dental implant in the first premolar tooth area, one zygoma implant in Group 4 and one dental implant in the lateral tooth area and one zygoma implant in Group 5 and one dental implant in the lateral and a first premolar tooth area were applied. 150 N were applied vertically to the prosthetic superstructure from the lateral tooth, 1st premolar tooth, 1st molar tooth and 2nd molar tooth. As a result of the applied forces, the maximum stress values in the maxilla molar region were examined by finite element stress analysis.
Results: In our study, it was observed that Group 1 had the highest stress value, followed by Group 3. Stress values in Groups 2, 4 and 5 were low and they were measured close to each other.
Conclusion: As a result of our study, it was seen that zygomatic and dental implants applied in addition to the zygomatic implant reduce stress and the localization of dental implants affect the stress values.
