Abstract

The occlusal status of single-unit dental implants were evaluated using traditional and computerized methods. The type of occlusal contact in maximum intercuspation and the presence of occlusal contacts on the implant during eccentric movements were recorded. A digital sensor was used for computerized analysis of occlusion. Forty-four patients with 74 implants were included. Twenty-nine implants (39%) presented with “heavy” occlusal contacts, 40 implants (54.1%) presented with “light” contacts, and 5 implants (6.8%) presented with “no contact.” No statistically significant association was found between the occlusal status and any of the soft and hard tissue condition variables (P > .05).
