Abstract

Background: Synthetic hydroxyapatite,(Ca10(PO4)6(OH2) can directly bond to bones without infection and fibrous encapsulation, thus is regarded as bioactive and biocompatible. The aim of the study was the estimation of microarchitecture bone parameters include bone mass (gm/cm2) cortical bone width (mm), thread width (mm), marrow space star volume analysis (V*m) and osteoblast, osteocyte cell number.
Materials and methods: Ninety-six (96) commercially pure titanium CpTi) used in this study, (48) implants were coated with HA by dipping coating and (48) implants were used as control. They were inserted in (32) Newzland white rabbits and followed for 2 & 6 weeks. Mechanical torque removal test and histomorphometric analysis of bone microarchiteture were performed for evaluation of osseointegration.
Results: Results revealed, Torque values were increased with advancing time for coated and uncoated groups. And specifically dip coated implant showed high value in comparison to control. Histomorphometric analysis for bone parameters showed highly significant difference in overall contrasted groups of implant in 2nd and 6th week interval. Conclusion: Dip coating method is an alternative coating technique for dental implant to enhance better bone implant contact and improve osseointegration.
