The NanoTite Implant Family
The NanoTite Implant includes the proprietary OSSEOTITE dual-acid-etched surface, which is then further treated with a deposition of nanometer scale crystals of calcium phosphate. This is known as the Discrete Crystalline Deposition or DCD® Process. The DCD surface treatment is a discrete crystalline deposition onto the OSSEOTITE Surface, not a plasma sprayed coating.
The synergistic effect of these two technologies, the OSSEOTITE Surface and the DCD Process, has demonstrated promising results in animal studies.* Because of this synergistic effect, a more complex micro-surface is created. Preclinical studies* demonstrated that the DCD Surface treatment, when compared to OSSEOTITE Control Implants, significantly improved the rate and extent of bone-to-implant contact, resulting in statistically significant enhanced integration.1,2
For all NanoTite Implant configurations, wherever there is the dual-acid-etched OSSEOTITE Surface, the DCD nano-scale calcium phosphate has been applied.
