Dental Implant connection to Natural Teeth

Dental implants are more rigid than natural teeth and if a rigid attachment is used between the prosthesis and natural tooth, the stress generated from forces are loaded primarily on implants. The following problems may be the result:
1. The implant may be overloaded resulting to failure.
2. The natural teeth may undergo disuse atrophy, affecting the supporting tissues more rapidly.
3. The natural teeth are overloaded, leading to extraction type forces that result in tooth loss.
