Study in vitro and in vivo of dental implants of Ti-30Ta experimental alloy after biomimetic surface treatment


This multidisciplinary proposal is innovative and it applies the research developed for our group in the last years since project (2007/00059-4) was approved. The techniques developed would be used for to obtain and to modify the surface of Ti-30Ta alloy. Ingots will be obtained in arc melting furnace, heat treated and cold worked. Dental implants (2mm in diameter and 2.5mm in length) will be machined and submitted to biomimetic surface treatment. Surface treatment of the implants will be realized according with our previous work. Thus, it was divided in three stages: alkali treatment (NaOH), heat treatment and immersion in 5xSBF for 24 hours. Implants will be divided into two groups for surface and osseointegration evaluation. The formation of apatite layer will be observed morphologically by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Also FTIR, EDS and X-ray diffraction will be used to confirm the presence of apatite-like layer in implants surface. For osseointegration analysis, implants will be placed into the femurs of eight rats, one on the left and the other on the right, treated and no treated, respectively. After healing of 7, 14 and 28 days, animals will be sacrificed through an overdose of CO2 inhalation and femurs will be dissected for histology analysis. (AU)
