Surface Analysis and Clinical Study of Connective Tissue Around Calcium Phosphate Coated Titanium Dental Implants in a Canine Model

Abstract:

Article Preview

A part of the titanium dental implant surface, which will meet connective tissue after being inserted in mandibular bone, was coated with calcium phosphate by ion beam assisted deposition (IBAD). Twenty-four implants of coated and uncoated group were randomly placed in mandibles after 3 months of premolars extraction in beagle dogs. All the implants were firmly anchored in the bone and had no clinical signs of peri-implant inflammation after 3-month insertion. The probing depth in calcium phosphate coated group is 1.9±0.2 mm, less than in control group (2.1±0.2 mm) (p<0.05). Most of the probing sites tended to bleed upon probing in two groups. It might indicate that the calcium phosphate coating has the potential to promote soft tissue integration.
