Abstract

A two dimensional mathematical model was generated, representing a three unit fixed-fixed partial denture and its supporting structures. Second premolar and second molar were used as abutments with first molar as pontic. A load of 1 kg was applied to the occlusal surface of the casting. Stresses and displacement developed at various regions were analyzed with STAAD III/ISDS program. Maximum stresses were developed in the pontic and connectors with distal connector experiencing the maximum stresses. Stresses transmitted to the dentin were comparatively lower and more of compressive in nature. The underying bone experienced moderate amount of both compressive and tensile stresses but the displacement in this tissue were minimal compared to the rest.
