Biotec Implant

Pure titanium and titanium alloys are well established standard materials in dental implants because of their favorable combination of mechanical strength, chemical stability, and biocompatibility.

Rough-surfaced implants favor both bone anchoring and biomechanical stability.

Osteoconductive calcium phosphate coatings promote bone healing and apposition, leading to the rapid biological fixation of implants.
The different methods used for increasing surface roughness or applying osteoconductive coatings to titanium dental implants are reviewed.
Surface treatments, such as titanium plasma-spraying, grit-blasting, acid-etching, anodization or calcium phosphate coatings, and their corresponding surface morphologies and properties are described. Most of these surfaces are commercially available and have proven clinical efficacy (>98% over 10 years).
