Surface treatments

CADskills foresees several features to increase the biocompatibility of all implants, and optimal surface properties.

Scaffold

Scaffold

The 3D printed porosities of a defined volume provide secondary stability by osteointegration, and provides a means of enthesis reconstruction, meaning muscle reattachment in the TMJ prosthesis. This allows the patient to really chew and cut, not just to open the mouth and to be without pain.

Micro-shot peening

Micro-shot peening

The lateral surface is micro-shot peened.

Acid etching

Acid etching

Acid etching further promotes osteoconductivity.

Ultrasonic cleaning

Ultrasonic cleaning

Implosion of the bubbles removes an endless variety of contaminants in a gentle way.

Plasma surface activation

Plasma surface activation

Plasma surface activation improves the wettability and hence, quick cell adhesion.

Polishing

Polishing

The surface of the implant that is not in direct contact with bony material, can be highly polished if desired by the surgeon.

Anodising

Anodising

The AMSJI implant will be anodized to make it “pinkish” for aesthetic reasons.

HadSat® coating

HadSat® coating

The condylar head of our TMJ prosthesis is coated with a HadSat® coating to improve wear resistance and have lower friction between the two articulating surfaces.
