Dicationic Imidazolium based ionic liquid coatings on zirconia surfaces: Physical and biological characterization
Osseointegration and soft tissue seal formation between a dental implant surface and host tissues are important steps in achieving successful implantation. However, factors such as bacterial biofilm adhesion, excessive ...
Investigation of Titanium Oxide Characteristics on Healing Abutments: Retrieval Characterization and Soft-Tissue Compatibility
Titanium implant healing abutments (IHAs) are a temporary component of the dental implant system that have a vital role in soft tissue healing and shaping after implant body placement. A large amount of studies have been ...
Scientific Fundamentals and Technological Development of Novel Biocompatible/Corrosion Resistant Ultrananocrystalline Diamond (UNCD) Coating Enabling Next Generation Superior Metal-Based Dental Implants
Current Ti-based dental implants exhibit failure (2-10%), due to various mechanisms, including chemical corrosion of the surface of the TiO2 naturally covered Ti-based implants. This thesis focused on developing a unique ...
Detoxification of Titanium Implant Surfaces: Evaluation of Surface Morphology and Pre-osteoblast Cell Compatibility
Success of a dental implant is primarily assessed by its surface condition and its capability to biologically integrate with surrounding soft and hard tissues. When the surface of an implant is compromised by bacterial ...
