Surface topography varies widely among commercially available orthopedic and dental implants. While it is generally accepted that the surface topography of an implant influences the formation of bone and affects its performance, few systematic studies have dealt with this important feature. Quantification of the mineralized tissue at the implant interface has typically been attempted using histologic methods or conventional radiographic procedures. However, histologic methods are often… CONTINUE READING
