To study the effects of different designs in single mandibular molar implant restoration on the stress distribution of implant-bone interface. Methods: Three-dimensional finite element method were used. Results: When wide-diameter implant or two-implant were used to replace single mandibular molar, the stress of implant-bone interface was much lower than that of standard-diameter implant restoration. Comparison between wide-diameter implant and two-implant replacement showed that the former created lower stress. The difference was more obvious under oblique loads. Conclusion: Using wide-diameter implant or two-implant to restore single mandibular molar should be recommended in clinical practice. If adequate bone quantity is provided, using wide-diameter implant should be better.
