New discovery helps strengthen bonding of titanium implants to bone
from Dental Tribune International
Scientists at the University of the West of England in Bristol have discovered a new way to improve the bond between titanium implants and bone. They found that a bioactive lipid called lysophosphatidic acid interacts with vitamin D to enhance bone-forming cell function. Based on this finding, the researchers have developed an LPA coating for titanium implants to help strengthen the bonding properties of implants to bone.
