A successful bone-graft-controlled healing entails the development of novel products with tunable compositional and architectural features and mechanical performances and is, thereby, able to accommodate fast bone in-growth and remodeling. To this effect, graphene nanoplatelets and Luffa-fibers were chosen as mechanical reinforcement phase and sacrificial template, respectively, and incorporated into a hydroxyapatite and brushite matrix derived by marble conversion with the help of a reproducibl...

Abstract For successful bone remodelling, the implantable 3D structures require suitable internal architectures which can be achieved by redirecting the use of fibres as natural templates. The ability of fibres to generate complex configurations for 3D bioceramic products was preliminary reported by sacrificial fibrous-porogen method. This study aims to demonstrate the safe-prospect of redirecting natural-fibres (i.e. luffa, hemp, wool) for embedment into a calcium phosphate (CaPs) matrix prepar...

Hydroxyapatite is a calcium phosphate intensively proposed as a bone substitution material because of its resemblance to the constituents of minerals present in natural bone. Since hydroxyapatite’s properties are mainly adequate for nonload bearing applications, different solutions are being tested for improving these properties and upgrading them near the target values of natural bone. On the other hand, starch (a natural and biodegradable polymer) and its blends with other polymers have been p...

AbstractIn this paper, silver microparticles were proposed as an additive (wetting agent) in the sintering of bovine bone-derived hydroxyapatite, and their well-known antibacterial properties were evaluated for the newly-developed materials. Hydroxyapatite was prepared by thermal processing of bovine bones, followed by milling and sorting. After silver addition, the samples were tested as precursors, green compacts and adhered particles-sintered compacts, using complementary morphological, compo...

The search of new alternative materials for bone reconstruction is a major objective in biomaterials engineering and reconstructive medicine. In this study the compact bone derived materials are proposed, their structure and composition being modified by thermal treatments performed in 200–1200°C range, using 200°C temperature steps. The monitoring of the bone modifications under heat-treatment was carried out using thermal analysis (TGA-DSC), microstructural (SEM), compositional (EDS) and struc...

: This study was developed for evaluating the possible causes of losing primary stability of dental implants and to find possible associations between implant designs or implant surface treatment and the quality of surrounding bone tissue. There have been evaluated five CP (Commercial Products) titanium dental implants having different shapes and surface morphology. All the implants have been extracted between three and six month from insertion time due to the loosening of primary stability. The...
The restoration of the missing structure for damaged or destroyed tooth, are achieved with a variety of treatments and advanced biomaterials. Each case needs appropriate biomaterials, especially in direct implants where defects of human skeleton may occur. The biomaterials behavior related to a specific human skeleton is the most important issue in the restorative dentistry. This contribution reports few aspects referring to morphology and composition behavior of the few biomaterials used for bo...
The aim of this paper is to present several methods for investigation of the biomaterials-tissue interactions. These methods were used to analyze different experimental implants made from metallic biomaterials for orthopedic and dentistry use, with different morphological aspects. For obtaining best and representative results, we used optical microscopy, corrosion tests, in vitro tests in the conditions of implantation in rabbits.
