The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of Temporomandibular Joint implant geometry on stress distribution in total reconstruction of temporomandibular joint. A three dimensional model of a lower jaw of a patient was developed from a Computed Tomography scan images. Anatomical curvature and flat contact surface of implant design and fixation screws were modeled. Two implanted mandibles were then compared by means of finite element analysis. The muscle forces for incisal clenching were applied. The equivalent stress resulted in contact surface region of the bone and implant and in fixation screw holes were investigated to evaluate the designs. In applied loading condition, The results showed that anatomical design of implant was more preferred and it will lead to long-term success of implant.
