FEM animation of titanium shock absorbers vs. rigid implant structures
The FEM animation "Titanium shock absorbers" shows that the chewing forces are distributed evenly over the virtual replacement tooth on the mucous membrane-bones foundation. Peak tensions as seen in the FEM animation for "rigid implant structures" are prevented.
This graphic shows an implant without the titanium shock absorber in a bridge connection with a natural tooth. The movability of the tooth causes the chewing forces to act as a lever on the rigid implant situation.
