PURPOSE The present study was designed to investigate the long-term bone response around machined screw-type uncoated and calcium phosphate (CaP) -coated commercially pure titanium implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using a magnetron sputtering technique, implants with a CaP coating similar in composition and CaP ratio to hydroxyapatite were produced. Heat treatment was subsequently used to increase the crystallinity of the coatings. Four types of coatings (0.1 and 2.0 microm amorphous and 0.1… CONTINUE READING
