Stresses in the jaw around different threaded dental implants were calculated using the finite element method. This involved, on the one hand, testing the main effect of thread design on stress distribution in the bone and, on the other hand, testing stresses around a TIOLOX® implant. The thread geometry of the TIOLOX® implant designed by W. Hotz is contoured to ensure uniform, favourable stresses in the bone.
