Table 5 Highest stress values according to the von Mises criterion for each reference model part and its relation with the materials’ yield strength

From: Effect of crown-to-implant ratio and crown height space on marginal bone stress: a finite element analysis

FEA SCLT
  von Mises stress (MPa) Materials’ yield strength (MPa) Factor of safety Sequence of failure/deformation
Bone 96.9 60 0.62 First
Prosthetic framework 326.9 659 2.02 Second
Implants 351.6 750 2.13 Third
Implant screws 344.6 795 2.30 Fourth
  1. The factor of safety is presented in the third column (ratio of the maximum stress that a material can withstand to the maximum stress it will be subjected to in function). Relation with the SCLT
