The finite element method is a commonly applied experimental research technique. The method comprises computer simulation of constructions under load and of internal mechanical processes, which enables the study of effects of geometrical and material variations. The analysis shows internal stresses and, consequently, predictions can be made of possible failure. In dentistry, the method is applied in disciplines, such as orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, implantology en restorative dentistry.
