Abstract

Laboratory and clinical data support the conclusion that Radio-Frequency-Glow-Discharge-Treatment (RFGDT) of calcium-phosphate-coated implants can accelerate their functional integration with bone at host sites. In addition to the benefits of surface cleaning and activation associated with RFGDT, a period of water-storage prior to implantation also seems to be beneficial in eluting easily solubilized alkaline calcium components.
