A Histomorphometric Study of Unthreaded Hydroxyapatite-Coated and Titanium-Coated Implants in Rabbit Bone
Gottlander, Magnus / Albrektsson, Tomas / Carlsson, Lars V.
Hydroxyapatite-coated and titanium-coated IMZ dental implants were investigated in an animal study. The implants were placed in the distal femurs of rabbits. Six months after placement, histomorphometric evaluation of the bone-to-implant contact was conducted. The hydroxyapatite-coated specimens demonstrated significantly more direct bone contact compared to the titanium-coated controls.
