Biomechanical evaluation of a titanium implant surface conditioned by a hydroxide ion solution


Stadlinger, Bernd; Ferguson, Stephen J; Eckelt, Uwe; Mai, Roland; Lode, Anna Theresa; Loukota, Richard; Schlottig, Falko (2012). Biomechanical evaluation of a titanium implant surface conditioned by a hydroxide ion solution. British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 50(1):74-79.

Abstract

Two groups of titanium dental implants, identical in geometry but different in the treatment of their surfaces, were tested in an in vivo minipig model of the mandible. The surfaces that were tested were, first, sandblasted and acid-etched; and secondly, sandblasted, acid-etched, and conditioned. The removal torque was assessed at 2, 4, and 8 weeks after implantation (n=6 animals in each healing period). The interfacial stiffness was also evaluated. All dental implants were well-integrated at the time of death. Removal torque values increased significantly over the course of 8 weeks. Removal torque and interfacial stiffness were increased for conditioned surfaces after 2 weeks, but there were no significant differences between the two surfaces. The sandblasted and acid-etched implants are the standard, and conditioning of the surface showed a tendency to increase early peri-implant formation of bone.
