The objective of this finite-element analysis (FEA) study is to check the effect of stress on different types of threaded implants. To perform the FEA study of 81 models, the geometry of cancellous bone is imported and corresponding materials are set using FEA software. A common biting force is applied on the implant. After applying the load, each model is compared on the basis of equivalent von Mises stress. From the analysis, we observe that a trapezoidal type of thread profile is most suitable for dental implants.
