The result validates the preceding FEM calculations and the three-step development concept selected. It supports the concept of the implant to create a synthesis between elements of the clinically successful Tiolox® implant that have been proven over many years, the latest findings in dental implantology and current demands for functionality and aesthetics by implantologists, dental technicians and patients. Despite its minimal dimensions the implant endured flexural loading with two million load cycles of 138 Ncm and a force of 250 N. Other implants on the market claim to be leaders in high-performance implants in terms of flexural strength and force endurance, even with considerably less values (e.g. 100 Ncm and 200 N).
