ISO 14801: Dentistry - Fatigue test for endosseous dental implants.
This International Standard specifies a method of fatigue testing of single post endosseous dental implants of the transmucosal type and their premanufactured prosthetic components. It is most useful for comparing endosseous dental implants of different designs or sizes. While it simulates the functional loading of an endosseous dental implant body and its premanufactured prosthetic components under “worst case” conditions, this International Standard is not applicable for predicting the in vivo performance of an endosseous dental implant or prosthesis, particularly if multiple endosseous dental implants are used for a prosthesis.
Typically n=11 implants are tested up to a maximum number of cycles of 5 million.
