ISO 14801:2007 specifies a method of fatigue testing of single post endosseous dental implants of the transmucosal type and their premanufactured prosthetic components. It is most useful for comparing endosseous dental implants of different designs or sizes.
While it simulates the functional loading of an endosseous dental implant body and its premanufactured prosthetic components under “worst case” conditions, ISO 14801:2007 is not applicable for predicting the in vivo performance of an endosseous dental implant or prosthesis, particularly if multiple endosseous dental implants are used for a prosthesis.
