In this paper, a numerical method based on finite elements is used to study the phenomena of resorption and growth of bone tissue and resorption of the biomaterial in the neighborhood of a dental implant fixture of the type IntraMobil Zylinder. The mechanical stimulus that drives these processes is a linear combination of strain energy and viscous dissipation. To simulate the implant, an axisymmetric model has been used from the point of view of the geometry; the material behavior is described in the poro-visco-elastic frame. The external action is represented by a load variable with sinusoidal law characterized by different frequencies. Investigated aspects are the influence of the load frequency and of the lazy zone on the remodeling process.
