Distribution Of Force During Eating With SAPTeethTM Vs. Conventional Teeth

The forces of eating are transferred from the tooth to the bone and then onto the jaw. This mechanism is called as chewing. Under normal circumstances the load of chewing is controlled by the feedback mechanism of naturally shock absorbable periodontal ligaments. In cases where dental treatment is done and extremely rigid prosthetic materials like metal and zirconia are used, they can withstand natural torsion of the jawbone. In cases of weak bone this is highly unadvisable, as this may lead to early ageing of the prosthesis and loss of support structures.

Compared to titanium, zirconia, ceramic, rehabilitation with SAPTeethTM significantly reduces the peak load during eating. This shock absorbable property produces a positive effect for the patient and increases the durability of the restoration.

How does the force get transferred to various places:

Natural Teeth: There is a natural layer between the tooth and the bone which holds the tooth. This layer supports the retention of the tooth into the jaw bone and also absorb the forces which are applied to the tooth. This layer also contains nerve endings which gives a feedback to the brain in case of excessive force. Hence the maximum load is borne by the tooth and little load is transmitted to the bone.

Dental Implant: In case of Oseo integrated dental implants, no nerve endings are present and so their feedback to the brain is very low. As there is no shock absorbing capability in titanium dental implant, the entire load is directly borne by the natural bone. Under such large forces of eating the natural bone tends to get damaged and weak.
