What is the topic of the webinar?
The clinical aim of implant therapy is to provide artificial abutments to support dental prostheses. These prostheses are inserted in order to allow masticatory and speech function as well as provide pleasing esthetics for the patient. During masticatory function and also during parafunction, forces are transferred from the occlusal contacts through reconstructions and implants to the bone and the surrounding tissues. This force transfer comprises biological and mechanical components. The balanced interplay between these forces and the biomechanical response and resilience of the implant-supporting tissues is the basis for long-term success and stability. The present lecture will shed light on clinically relevant biomechanical aspects of implant-borne reconstructions.
