Nano-engineered coatings on titanium implants

Tsanka Dikova

Abstract

The present paper deals with the latest developments in nanoscale coatings on titanium implants. The main problems of dental implants and the main advantages of nanotechnologies are discussed. Precisely defined structures commensurable with the bone structure can be created on the implant surfaces using various nanotechnologies. Nanostructured coatings improve bioactivity and biocompatibilty influencing the whole process of osteoblast integration.
