- Purpose : The purpose of this pilot experiment was to evaluate early bone response in two types of coated
implants using the rabbit tibia model.
Materials and Methods : Screw type titanium implants manufactured with a calcium metaphosphate (CMP)
coating and hydroxyapatite (HA) coating were placed in the tibiae of 3 New Zealand White rabbits. The bone
responses at 2 weeks after insertion were evaluated and compared by histomorphometry.
Results : There was no significant difference in bone-to-implant contact between the groups (P>.05).
However, some qualitative differences on histologic views were found.
Conclusions : CMP-coating is suggested to be the preferred candidate for fast osseointegration over HAcoating.
