PRELIMINARY RESULTS CONCERNING ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE VIDEO IMAGE CORRELATION METHOD IN THE DENTAL IMPLANTS ANALYSIS
The authors, in their preliminary investigations [1; 2; 3], conceived an original testing bench, destined to human mandibles’ strain-state evaluation.
Involving the mentioned testing bench, the authors started to perform some preliminary experimental investigations in several dental implants’ behaviours.
In the described investigations, the authors some useful correlations between the dental implant’s positioning on the mandible, the applied mastication force magnitude and its relative 3D positioning with respect to the implant’s longitudinal axis.
Their next topic will consist in a searching examination of the optimal positioning of the implants, with respect to their loading conditions.
One has to underline the fact that the proposed original methodology will represent in the next period a high-accuracy approach in the evaluation of the strain-state analysis of the dental implants.
