Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a modern tool for numerical stress analysis, with an advantage of being applicable to solids of irregular geometry that contain heterogeneous material properties. The history of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) dates back to 1943 when R. Courant first developed this technique. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) by structural analysis allows the determination of stress resulting from external force, pressure, thermal change, and other factors. This article provides a review of the achievements and extrapolating the concepts of Finite Element Analysis in Implant Dentistry.
Keywords: Finite element analysis, finite element method, Geometric model, Three Dimensional, Implants.
