    Introduction: Dental implants were widely used being considered as successful treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Different methods were used to alter surface morphology and topography to accelerate healing and improve oseointegration. The aim of this study was to assess corrosion resistance and in vitro bioactivity in simulated body fluid (SBF) of plasma nitrided surfaces with and without hydroxyapatite coating. Material and Methods: Commercial pure titanium grade II surfaces were treated using glow plasma nitride apparatus for 10 h, then coated with hydroxyapatite by dip coating, The electrochemical corrosion test was performed once the samples were inserted in Hank’s solution, the polarization potential and corrosion rate were measured. Treated and coated samples immersed in SBF for 7 days to evaluate the in vitro bioactiv.. Read More»
