    Abstract :

    Ti-6AL-4V ELI and Zirconia are the important bio-inert materials used in the field of dental implant due to their unique characteristics of minimal interaction with surrounding tissue. This paper presents the typical Finite element method (FEM) is an effective approach for analysis of dental implant and dental structures. In the present work, 3 dimensional modeling of molar tooth was generated by CATIA V5 software and analysis were carriedout by commercial FEA software Ansys 14.5 to evaluate the displacement, strain, stress, fatigue life and factor of safety in the proximal region of Ti-6Al-4V ELI and Zirconia molar tooth implant under static load condition of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 newton. The results show that the displacement, strain and stresses, fatigue life and factor of safety were within the material admissible limits for Zirconia. Hence the study reveals that Zirconia is an alternate biomaterial suitable for dental implants.
