Opinions vary widely as to what effect occlusion has on the long term success of dental implants.  On one hand we have clinicians who feel that we must shield our implants from excessive load.  Others feel that its simply impossible to overload an implant.  The truth is probably somewhere in between these extremes.  This presentation will focus on the available evidence and will attempt to make some sense out of it.  At the end of this program the participant will:

1. Have a clear perception of the risk factors associated with implant occlusion.
2. Be able to evaluate those risk factors when treatment planning patients.
3. Understand how implant design impacts the potential for fatigue loading under function.
