Development of Coating Method that Accelerates Bonding with Bone by 3 Times

27.05.2013
Researchers at the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) and Tokyo Medical and Dental University have developed a coating method which accelerates bonding with bone by 3 times.
Dr. Masanori Kikuchi, Group Leader of the Bioceramics Group, International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) and a research group at Tokyo Medical and Dental University succeeded in developing a coating method which accelerates bonding with bone by 3 times.

Dr. Masanori Kikuchi, Group Leader of the Bioceramics Group, International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA; Director-General: Masakazu Aono), National Institute for Materials Science (President: Sukekatsu Ushioda), and a research group including Masayoshi Uezona (graduate student), Prof. Kazuo Takakuda (Institute of Biomaterials and Bioengineering), Prof. Keiji Moriyama (School of Dentistry, Maxillofacial Orthognathics), and others at Tokyo Medical and Dental University (President; Takashi Ohyama) succeeded in developing a coating which accelerates bonding with bone by 3 times.

Orthodontic subperiosteal devices are superior in terms of low invasiveness, but because bonding with bone on the surface of the bone is necessary, a minimum waiting time of approximately 3 months had been required until medical use was possible, even when coating treatment was performed with hydroxy apatite (HAp).

FigureFPhotographs of tissue preparation during 4 weeks after surgery. In the upper 2 photos, soft tissue (dyed pink) exists between titanium material (black) and bone tissue (dyed brown); however, with the HAp/Col in the lower photos, direct bonding has occurred between the material and the bone.

In order to shorten this time, the device shape was optimized and a new coating method was developed in joint work by NIMS and Tokyo Medical and Dental University. As a result, a coating method which realizes in only 1 month the same bone coverage as after 3 months with the conventional device was established.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
