Bone mechanobiology deals with connection between mechanical signals and molecular events in cells and bone tissue. The current study on this subject involves computer models, molecular biology and high resolution imaging of bone. This paper reviews general concepts which take place on mechanobiology and biomechanics of maxillary bones. Mechanical features in several dimensional levels are studied and some factors with influence on perimplantary bone are also evaluated.
