In the first part of this two-part study the possible uses of finite element analysis in studying the stress transmission of dental implants were reviewed. In the present second part our own experiments are presented. In the first series the effect of the geometric parameters and load types on mechanical stresses arising around cylindrical implants in bone were studied with 2D and 3D finite element analysis. In the second series the stress transmissions of various implant geometries were compared and an attempt was made to determine the optimal implant shape from the point of view of stress transmission.
