Three different types of commercially available dental implants (Nobelpharma, IMZ, and Integral) were implanted in the edentulous mandibles of seven adult mongrel dogs. Twenty-one implants were harvested with block sections after 12 weeks and embedded in polymethyl methacrylate resin. Undecalcified sections were prepared with the sectioning-grinding technique. The percentage of bone contacting the implant surface was measured with a self-designed histomorphometry method using a millimeter grid in a stereomicroscope. The results demonstrated a significantly higher percentage of bone along the hydroxyapatite-coated implant than that seen with the titanium-surfaced implant types. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1992;7:491496.)

Key words: experimental study, histomorphometry implant surface, machined commercially pure titanium, plasma flame-sprayed hydroxyapatite, plasma flame-sprayed titanium
