Stress analysis of dental implant with two different crown materials, that is, Gold and Titanium alloys was performed by using Abacus software. The stress and strain distribution across the mandible and implant was investigated for both crown materials under similar loading condition and the effect on osseointegration was examined. It was identified that Gold crown implant induced less stress in the adjacent teeths and across the mandible than the Titanium alloy crown, thus making it favorable for utilization in dental implants. The effect of the implant’s stresses on the jawbone is also investigated. The study offers valuable insights into the stress distribution in dental implants and their impact on Osseointegration, which can help in the development of more effective and durable dental prostheses.
