The maximal stresses in the cortical bone were increased by up to 3 % by the fine thread on the implant next; strains in the cancellous bone were slightly reduced by the fine thread. This indicates that the fine thread increases the load transmission in the cortical bone. This should have a positive impact on the biomechanical properties and healing process.
