Cell Growth on TiAlNb Alloy as a Function of Bioactivation Method


Article Preview

This paper it supposed to demonstrate how to obtain the hydroxylapatite on the surface of TiAlNb biomaterial used as dental implant. The bone-forming bioactivity of TiAlNb is associated with its chemical and structural properties, including composition, porosity, specific surface area and particle size. After different bioactivation surface treatments as chemical and electrochemical treatments, it was observed a better stability for the TiAlNb alloy that was treated electrochemically.
