A Histomorphometric Study of Unthreaded Hydroxyapatite-Coated and Titanium-Coated Implants in Rabbit Bone

Magnus Gottlander, MD/Tomas Albrektsson, MD, PhD/Lars V. Carlsson, MD, PhD


PMID: 1299644

Hydroxyapatite-coated and titanium-coated IMZ dental implants were investigated in an animal study. The implants were placed in the distal femurs of rabbits. Six months after placement, histomorphometric evaluation of the bone-to-implant contact was conducted. The hydroxyapatite-coated specimens demonstrated significantly more direct bone contact compared to the titanium-coated controls. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1992;7:485490.)

Key words: coatings, histomorphometry, hydroxyapatite, implants, titanium
