Mechanics Meets Biomechanics

  • Stefan Ihde


The technique of basal osseointegration draws on the empirical finding that the jaw bone is continuously subjected to deformation and torsion. BOI implants are therefore inserted in such a way that they are somewhat more rigid than the jaw itself in order to avoid total isoelasticity. On the other hand, the rigidity must not reach a point where the implant-bone interface is subjected to peak forces that would give rise to osteolysis or avulsion.
