Biotec Implant

Anodized surface:

The anodized surface is a partial crystalline and phosphate enriched titanium oxide characterized by a microstructured surface with open pores in the low micrometer range.
Anodization or anodic oxidization as it's also called is an electrochemical process carried out in an electrolyte.

The structural and chemical properties could be tailored by varying different process parameters, such as anode potential, electrolyte composition, temperature and current.

The bone response to anodized implants has been evaluated in different species and healing times and most often compared to the original machined surface.
Significant higher bone to implant.
Superiority hydrophilic anodized surface in the early stages of healing is absolutely obvious.

A higher clinical success rate was observed for the anodized titanium implants in comparison with turned titanium surfaces of similar shapes. Two mechanisms have been proposed to explain this osseointegration: mechanical interlocking through bone growth in pores, and biochemical bonding.

The result of the anodic oxidation of the titanium surface is the improvement of the biomechanical characteristics of bone-implant interactions, expressed in the significant strengthening of the implant fixated in the bone tissue, which is histologically proven (Sul Y.T. et al„ 2002; Rocci A. et al„ 2003).
