Microvascular changes after placement of titanium implants: scanning electron microscopy observations of machined and titanium plasma-sprayed implants in dogs.


BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to clarify the osseointegration process of titanium implants through study of the vascular architecture and bone apposition. The smooth machined-surface implant is tightly fixed to the bone by its threads. The rough titanium plasma-sprayed (TPS) coated implants give a scaffold for new bone. METHODS Twelve beagle… (More)
