Paper Title:
Titanium Powder on Surface Conditioning of Osseointegrable Surgical Implants Topographics Aspects
  Abstract

Osseointegrable surgical implants are usually made on titanium or titanium alloys. The osseointegration process is improved by surface conditioning of these implants, increasing surface area with no loosing of bio-compatibility, i.e., without contamination by non bio-compatible materials. The surface conditioning of these implants might be accomplished in different ways: blasting, chemical etching, deposition, etc. Two alternatives considering titanium powders are discussed in this work: blasting and plasma spraying deposition. Results are presented in terms of topography of osseointegrable surgical implants through scanning electron microscopy techniques.
