There is no higher priority to us than being your trusted partner.  As we have diligently monitored the evolving Covid-19 (Coronavirus) situation in South-Africa and throughout the world, we have kept what’s most important- your health and safety – top of mind.

 After careful consideration, ISS Implant Support Services cc and MIS Implants Technologies LTD have made the collective decision to cancel the scheduled MIS Day South Africa 2020.

In addition, Israel has placed a travel ban on their citizens, so Prof. Bichacho is unable to travel to South Africa to speak at MIS Day.

 We truly feel this is in the best interest of all attendees and speakers.

We are working with Prof Bichacho on the possibility of him joining us for the SAAO conference in Cape Town in October. We will keep you updated.

 Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

 Kind regards,

ISS Team

Three-dimensional finite element model of a human mandible incorporating six osseointegrated implants for stress analysis of mandibular cantilever prostheses.

Abstract: The three-dimensional finite element stress analysis method was used to determine the distribution of stresses in and around a model of six implants which supported a typical fixed complete-arch prosthesis in a simulated human mandible. A load of 100 N was applied at different intervals along the cantilever segment. There was a decrease of stress that reached a minimal level at 15 mm along the cantilever segment. Thereafter, a progressive increase of stresses in the lingual and buccal plates was demonstrated.
