Introduction: Dental implants have become the most popular form of restorative dentistry for normal function, aesthetics, speech and health. A fundamental criterion to determine success of an implant surgery is the fast and stable implant Osseo integration; which is the formation of a direct structural and functional connection between the implant and supporting tissues.

Case Report: The patient, a 25-year-old male, non-smoker in good general health, presented with a missing tooth #47. History revealed that the tooth was extracted due to failed endodontic treatment and was currently replaced with a removable partial denture. Radiographic and clinical examination revealed that bone volume was adequate in all dimensions. As the patient wanted a fixed restoration, options were discussed including an option of a conventional fixed bridge, bonded Maryland type-bridge or an implant retained crown. An implant was the preferred treatment option.

Discussion: Biomechanics compromises all kinds of interaction between tissues of the body and the forces acting on them; including the responses of the biologic tissues to the applied loads. Calculating the effective firmness from homogenization of peri-implant tissues appears to be a reliable approach to predict implant stability. However, the structure-biomechanical relationship always remained a clinical challenge.

Conclusion: In the early years of treating patient with osseointegrated dental implants, we underestimated the importance of biomechanics and the limitations of the systems that were available. A thorough biomechanical planning not only would confirm the suitability of the treatment, but also prove beneficial in avoiding the litigious risk.
