About Mechanics-Materials and Dentistry of dental implants

Dental implants are increasingly being placed for edentulous patients worldwide. While the clinical aspects of the implants are extensively investigated, engineering considerations of the implant as a functional structure subjected to ill-defined boundary conditions are less considered. A recent trend is to consider all ceramic implants as an alternative to the classical titanium-based implants.

Snap-back induced hysteresis in an elastic mechanical metamaterial under tension

We combine experiment and finite element simulation and come up with a design of a mechanical metamaterial which demonstrates snap-back induced hysteresis and energy dissipation. The resultant is an elastic system that can be used reversibly for many times. The underlying mechanism of existence of hysteresis and the physics of snap-back induced elastic instability is unveiled. Our results open an avenue for design and implementation of recoverable energy dissipation devices by harnessing mechanical instability.
