A Study on the Interface between Oxide Film on the Titanium Surface and Bone Tissue


Article Preview

The bioactivities of titanium oxide film on titanium surface received from different chemical treatment methods were studied in SBF in vitro and mechanically and histologically investigated in vivo. Three groups of titanium specimens were prepared: untreated titanium(S), acid-alkali treated titanium (H), and acid-alkali and heat-treated titanium(X). The oxide film of X surface resulted in more apatite formation and significantly higher strength of the interface between the samples and bone than those of the other titanium groups. The surface of the acid-alkali treated titanium and that further treated by heat treatment had higher bioactivity and stronger bone-bonding ability.
