Development of a titanium dental implant with superior antibacterial properties (NANOTI)
Date du début: 1 févr. 2014, Date de fin: 31 janv. 2016 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Infections associated with dental implants may cause peri-implantitis often resulting in implant loss and impaired function. Recent studies show an alarming increase in the incidence of the infections, while on the other hand the efficacy of the prevailing treatment method is decreasing due to the rising resistance of micro-organisms to antibacterial agents.The SMEs of the NanoTi consortium intend to bring a new titanium implant to the market that possesses the innate capability to resist bacterial infections without the addition of any antibacterial compound. In order to reach this goal the aim of the NanoTi project is to develop nanophase topography on the surface of titanium dental implants that will enable such an effect.This nanophase topography:• Reduces the susceptibility of titanium dental implants for infections;• Enables the surgical decontamination of implants if infection occurs;• Supports bone healing around the dental implant.
