Advantages of the Procedure
  • Microporosity with high capillarity
  • Complete and uniform coverage of porous surfaces and complex implant geometries
  • No flaking of particles or coating delaminations
  • Large free calcium and phosphate reservoir on the implant surface after surgery offers ideal proliferation conditions for osteoblasts
  • Faster and better healing
  • "Non-line-of-sight" process
