A Closer Look At Nobel Biocare’s TiUnite Surface

Nobel Biocare has been at the forefront of dental implant technology pretty much since the inception of the treatment. Their not so new, but still very relevant, and arguably most successful development in the world of dental implantology is the unique dental implant surface known as TiUnite.

TiUnite

It is a porous titanium coating on the dental implant’s surface which aids the process of osseointegration, leading to shorter healing times, greater initial stability, which leads to less chances of dental implant failure, as well as less pain and discomfort for the patients.

Over 11 Million Sold

Over half a year ago, the ten year old technology known as the TiUnite dental implant surface reached its 11 millionth dental implant sold. That is a marvelous achievement, and has set Nobel industries unquestionably as the leading dental implant manufacturer, and the TiUnite technology as their most popular and most profitable enterprise to date. Let’s now take a little bit closer look at the dental implant surface itself, what it is, how it is made and why it has propelled Nobel industries into the forefront of the biotechnology industry, and as an unquestionable leader in their own specialised field of dental implantology.

The TiUnite Dental Implant Surface

TiUnite is a titanium oxide that is slightly negatively charged. It is made into a little bit rough, porous material by oxidizing the titanium by a process known as electric anodization, or spark anodization. This is done by immersing the titanium implants in an electrolytic fluid, which then will oxidize the titanium, and make it porous. This porous nature of the dental implant makes it osteoconductive, meaning that it interacts positively with the bone that it is placed in.

This process of anodization also makes the the surface a little bit negatively charged. This is helpful in achieving homeostasis, which is a stable state of blood flow. The negatively charged surface attracts blood palates and other elements of the blood, thus achieving homeostasis. This state is achieved in under one hour, which is an incredible feat.

The porous material allows for the jaw bone to start going into and through the dental implant, thus locking the dental implant into the jaw, essentially achieving stability as high as if the implant would be growing out of the jaw naturally. Titanium is used because this element is not recognized as a foreign body by the human immune system, so allergic reactions are ruled out, and this also aids in osseointegration, as the bone “thinks” that it is growing over something that is a part of it.

This process of osseointegration starts as soon as one week after the dental implant is placed, as before then, what is known as the inflammatory phase takes place, in which the tissue around the dental implant will be inflamed from the trauma of the dental implant being placed into it. Once this has gone down, osseointegration begins immediately.

A Great Choice

Even before it’s ten year run as the most popular dental implant surface, the TiUnite system has had significant results in clinical trials. This makes the many different Noble Industries dental implants treated with this surface a safe, reliable, and very much recommended choice. Ask your dentist about Noble Industries today!
