(Clinical Oral Implants Research, 2014-05-30)
Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the antibacterial properties of silver‐doped titanium surfaces prepared with a novel electrochemical anodizing process. Material and methods: Titanium ...
Mechanical and physicochemical characterization along with biological interactions of a new Ti25Nb21Hf alloy for bone tissue engineering
(Journal of Biomaterials Applications, 2015-03-23)
Nowadays, one of the main challenges in metal implants for bone substitution is the achievement of an elastic modulus close to that of human cortical bone as well as to provide an adequate interaction ...
