    Abstract

    The use of finite element analysis is becoming more widespread with rapid advancements in computer technology. However, the field of dentistry is not enjoying the spillover benefits of the expanded use of this design simulation and analysis tool. Finite element modeling requires measurement of the object. However, as the living body is morphologically very complex, this requires a great deal of both time and skill using CAD applications, thus preventing its widespread adoption in the dental field. Although there have been reports of finite element modeling from CT images, these methods require skilled programmers for software development - which is another factor that prevents its widespread adoption in dentistry. Therefore, establishing a finite element modeling method that is both accurate and practical will be of great benefit in clinical dentistry. In the present study, a method using computer tomography and existing software was examined for finite element model construction based on computer tomography images. The results suggested that the method developed here is feasible and practical for clinical use.
