Occlusion on Fixed Implant Prostheses

Charlotte Stilwell

Implants and their prostheses replace teeth.

They therefore have to participate fully in oral function. A substantial part of oral function is related to occlusion when the teeth and their replacements make contact.

This module will examine the ability of implants and their prostheses to withstand occlusal forces and offer guidelines for occlusal design.

After completing this ITI Academy Module you should be able to…

  • recognize characteristics of occlusal forces and biophysical differences in how teeth and implants respond to them
  • discuss the potential impact of occlusal forces on complications and failures of implants and their prostheses
  • apply recommended guidelines for occlusal management in implant therapy
