Highly sensitive to implants

Historically, strictly complying with a defined level of surface roughness has been the only way of inserting implants without any complications. That is why, to achieve this level of quality, it is immensely important to check the results using precise surface measurement systems after what can sometimes be a time-consuming surface treatment process. Form deviations or roughness outside of defined tolerances can be extremely unpleasant in the sensitive inner mouth area, where dental implants come into contact with both the gums and microorganisms. In certain cases, some surfaces need to be given special treatment if the desired properties are to be achieved. “Organic coatings” increase the implants’ durability. Polytec’s range of precise surface metrology products helps you to detect deviations and thereby achieve the desired surface condition.

測定事例

同様の事例として、関節インプラントがあります。完璧な表面特性ならば体がインプラントを受け入れます。人工関節の研磨工程において粗い表面があるなどの欠陥が発生すると、望ましくない微生物の増加率が上がり、一方、インプラント寿命を短くする可能性があります。ポリテックのTopMap表面測定システムはこのアプリケーションに最適です。
