Abstract: Finite element analysis (FEA) has been used extensively to predict the biomechanical performance of various dental implant designs as well as the effect of clinical factors on implant success. By understanding the basic theory, method, application, and limitations of FEA in implant dentistry, the clinician will be better equipped to interpret results of FEA studies and extrapolate these results to clinical situations. This article reviews the current status of FEA applications in implant dentistry and discusses findings from FEA studies in relation to the bone-implant interface, the implant-prosthesis connection, and multiple-implant prostheses.
