Özet

An experimental model was designed to evaluate the effects of the intramobile connector in reducing stress concentration in an IMZ implant in fixed connection with a natural tooth abutment. The study analyzed the stresses produced at the cervical level of the implant when the superstructure arm was deflected within the limits of physiologic mobility under static axial loads. The designed experimental model was sensitive to changes in strain data with the applied loads and different internal elements. The intramobile connector resilient component reduced strain up to 60% compared to the rigid internal element.
