Stress Distribution Study Using the Finite Element Method in Three Different Implant-Supported Fixed Complete-Arch Mandibular Prostheses

T he objective of this research was to evaluate, by three-dimensional [3D] finite element analysis [FEA], the stress distribution in three different fiveimplant mandibular protocol prosthesis models, when these three undergo a simulated occlusal load of 100 N in the area of the cantilever: [1] model A, temporary all-acrylic resin; (2J model B, metal-acrylic; and (3) model C, metal-ceramic.
