The texture of an implant's surface can influence the rate and extent of bone fixation as expressed by the amount of linear bone-to-implant contact (BIC). The purpose of this study was to compare the bone density and linear BIC between Osseotite and machined-surface implants placed in bony defects without graft material and covered by a membrane. Thirty 2 mm diameter, 10 mm length custom implants were prepared for this study having a 'split surface,' with one side having the acid-etched surface… CONTINUE READING
