Surface improvement of metal implants: new preparation methods and new materials

Objective

Transmucosal metal implants are mainly employed in orthopedic and dental surgery. The economical impact of these treatments will largely increase due to the ageing of European people. The main objective is to develop new surface treatments on titanium implants able to trigger and to control cell differentiation with the ability of different biological functions to be fulfilled simultaneously in different loci of the implant. Two different and complementary ways are proposed to reach these goals: (i)titanium surfaces modifications based on nanometric multilayered polyelectrolyte films; (ii)improvement of pulsed laser deposition with highly bioactive calcium phosphates.
