Coating

The rapid Osseo integration and its long-term security is supported by a two-layer coating which has two functions. An outer coating, a two-phase, thin calcium phosphate film (Hydroxyapatite & Dicalcium phosphate) for accelerated Osseo integration, with an extremely large surface that is absorbed within 6 months. Underneath lies a highly rough pure Titanium plasma coating in proven quality for permanent anchorage.
