Removal Torques for Polished and Rough Titanium

Lars Carlsson, MD/Tord Röstlund, MD/Björn Albrektsson, MD, PhD/Tomas Albrektsson, MD, PhD


PMID: 3250932

The ability to resist removal torques was compared for two different surface textures of screw-shaped commercially pure titanium implants. It was found that the removal torque for rough-surfaced implants was significantly higher in comparison to smooth-surfaced implants after 6 weeks of implantation time in rabbits. (INT ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1988;3:21-24.)

Key words: biomechanical test, electropolished implants, osseointegration, surface texture, titanium implants
