Once the assembly of TMJ prostheses fixed to the mandibular bone is performed (Figure 3(a)), all the bodies, both the mandibular cortical bone and the two TMJ prosthesis components, were meshed using the 4-node tetrahedron C3D4 [22].
Even in patients with wider buccolingual alveolar bone width, insertion of short and wide implants may be questionable, as the preparation of mandibular bone for wide implants would leave only a slim cortical plate around implants after the insertion.
Mandibular bone defects caused by tumor resection, infection, trauma, or surgery are so common that they consume a large amount of medical resources [1].
