Dr Robert Stanley: Off-axis loads result in more implant complications and failures than any other type.

These loads put the implant under a bending moment and over time these implant components either loosen up or get damaged due to repeated loadings and fatigue build-up. Implants are not designed to sustain bending loads! They are optimised to sustain axial forces and that’s why the forces on teeth during chewing etc have to be considered when positioning implants.
