The aim of this study was to compare the characteristics of the bone-to-implant interface of hydroxyapatite-coated and non-coated commercially pure titanium threaded implants after different periods of healing in humans. To eliminate possible variations of the results from differences in bone quality and in surgical techniques used in the different test and control sites, only one half of each implant was coated with hydroxyapatite. The coated portions of the implants showed a tendency toward a… CONTINUE READING
