RBM SURFACE

Macroscopic and microscopic properties of Dental Implant Surfaces play a major role in their osseous healing process. Roughened implant surfaces provide increased retention strength. The topography, down to the micrometer, affects the attachment and growth of bone cells. Implant GENESIS applies the RBM (Resorbable Blast Media) technique in order to induce the sub-micro topography. The material used for the RBM rocess is Calcium Phosphate,which is a highly resorable and biocompatible material. Usage of Calcium Phosphate as the blasting material also eliminates the need of using strong acids for the removal of blasting material remnants. Implant surfaces that have been RBM treated are considered to be more osteoconductive. Research showed higher percentage of bone to implant contact around RBM treated implants. This finding could be especially useful in severe clinical conditions like poor bone quality and in cases of early or immediate loading.
