Histomorphometric Evaluation of Bone Response to Different Titanium Implant Surfaces


Article Preview

Titanium dental implants presenting different blasted surfaces and an OCP coated surfaces have been implanted in the femoral epiphysis of rabbits. A comparable osseointegration has been observed for the titanium implants blasted either with alumina or biphasic calcium phosphates particles whatever the delay of implantation (2 or 8 weeks). A higher bone to implant contact has been observed for the SLA and OCP coated implants as compared to the grit-blasted groups.
