Multiscale Bone Remodeling Prediction for Fully Porous-Coated (FPC) Dental Implant Supported Prosthesis
This paper aims at providing a preliminary understanding in biomechanics with respect to the effect of FPC dental implants on bone remodelling. 2D multi-scale finite element models are created for a typical dental implantation setting. Under a certain mastication force (<200N), a global response from a macro-scale model (without considering coated surface morphology details) is first obtained and then it is transferred to the micro-scale models (with coated surface morphology details and various particle sizes) for micro-scale analysis. A strain energy density (SED) obtained from 2D micro-scale Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used as a mechanical stimulus to determine the bone remodeling in term of the change in apparent bone densities for cancellous and cortical bones. The change in bone densities is examined as a result of bone remodelling activities over a period of 48 months.
