OBJECTIVES To compare the bone tissue response to surface-modified zirconia (ZrO2 ) and titanium implants. METHODS Cylindrical low-pressure injection moulded zirconia (ZrO2 ) implants were produced with an acid-etched surface. Titanium implants with identical shape, sandblasted and acid-etched surface (SLA) served as controls. Eighteen adult miniature pigs received both implant types in the maxilla 6 months after extraction of the canines and incisors. The animals were euthanized after 4, 8… CONTINUE READING
