The dental implant is the equivalent of a tooth root well anchored in the jaw. This research paper aimed to study the characteristics of biomaterials used for dental implants using numerical methods in order to select which has better properties and is closer to the bone. The pattern of stress distribution in the jaw and implant can result in bone restoration and implant failure. In this context, a three-dimensional finite element (3D) model of implant/bone system has been established, for two materials, to predict the stress distribution and further studies the influence of length, threading and coating, in order to identify its effects on the distribution of stress generated around the implant and the surrounding bone under a biomechanical consideration. The results of this study indicated that the maximum stresses always occurred in the abutment and at the beginning of contact on the bone/implant contour.
