Abstract: The Finite Element Method (FEM) is a numerical technique to seek out the solutions of partial differential equations. It absolutely was originated from the requirement of resolution complex geometry and structural analysis issues engineering field. FEM analysis has been widely used in engineering industries for many years. It is a vital tool to understand the mechanical behaviour of materials under completely different constraints. Now a day’s medical industry is more relaying on the FEM-CAD solutions. Particularly for the dentistry, like CAD-CAM, the solutions of FEM are playing a vital role. This work is allotted to analyze the influence of various materials for the molar crown victimization FEM. As the human tooth is one of the complex structure geometries, the analysis of mechanical behaviour is more difficult. FEM can be useful for Orthodontics, Implantology, Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics. This work, the Finite element analysis is administered for the maxillary molar crown for the biocompatible materials such as metals, i.e. Cobalt chromium alloy and ceramics, i.e. Zirconia. The results are extremely useful for manufacturers of dental crowns and dentists.
