An in vivo study of bone response to implants topographically modified by laser micromachining.

Abstract

Dental implants topographically modified by laser ablation of periodic arrays of micron-sized craters, were studied in a two-part laboratory investigation. The patterned and control (turned) implants were inserted in rabbit femur and tibia. After 12 weeks the fixation in the bone was evaluated mechanically or by histomorphometry (all threads along the… (More)
