Ti6Al4V alloy is successfully used as implant material in dental and orthopedic surgeries for years due to its much better compatibility, lower density, corrosion resistance, etc. compared to the other metals. Meantime, modification of the surface of these alloys is needed to enhance material-tissue interaction and osteointegration between the implant and the bone. In this study, Ti6Al4V alloy surfaces were modified by application of RF magnetron sputtering technique and coated with zinc (Zn) doped hydroxyapatite (HAp). The obtained coating was very stable with highly crystalline structure, demonstrated enhanced corrosion resistance, osteointegration and antimicrobial effectiveness against Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria.

Strontium doped hydroxyapatite biomimetic coatings on Ti6Al4V plates
AVCI, Muhammed; YILMAZ, Bengi; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Evis, Zafer (2017-08-15)
Titanium (Ti) and its alloys are the most attractive metallic biomaterials since their first introduction to the biomedical area. Their major drawback is that they do not promote complete osteointegration due to their low bioactivity; thus, it is necessary to perform a surface treatment or apply a surface coating to increase the initial formation of surrounding bone tissue. In this study, strontium (Sr)-doped hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings on Ti6Al4V substrates were prepared by biomimetic method in which 2 ti...
Predicting time-dependent remodeling of bone around immediately loaded dental implants with different designs

The purpose of this study was to predict time-dependent biomechanics of bone around cylindrical screw dental implants with different macrogeometric designs under simulated immediate loading condition. The remodeling of bone around a parallel-sided and a tapered dental implant of same length was studied under 100 N oblique load by implementing the Stanford theory into three-dimensional finite element models. The results of the analyses were examined in five time intervals consisting loading immediately after...
Resorbable PCEC/gelatin-bismuth doped bioglass-graphene oxide bilayer membranes for guided bone regeneration
Pazarçeviren, Ahmet Engin; Evis, Zafer; Keskin, Dilek; Tezcaner, Ayşen (IOP Publishing, 2019-05-01)
Guided bone regeneration (GBR) is a therapeutic modality applied prior to dental implant placement to increase bone density at the defect site or during placement for directing bone growth around implant. In this study, an asymmetric, bilayer structure was prepared by covalently bonding a dense polycaprolactone-polyethylene glycol-polycaprolactone (PCEC) membrane layer with a hydrogel layer composed of bismuth doped bioactive glass (BG, 45S5) and graphene oxide (GO) particles incorporated in gelatin. Struct...
Anodized Nanostructured 316L Stainless Steel Enhances Osteoblast Functions and Exhibits Anti-Fouling Properties
Erdoğan, Yaşar Kemal; Ercan, Batur (2023-01-01)
Poor osseointegration and infection are among the major challenges of 316L stainless steel (SS) implants in orthopedic applications. Surface modifications to obtain a nanostructured topography seem to be a promising method to enhance cellular interactions of 316L SS implants. In this study, arrays of nanodimples (NDs) having controlled feature sizes between 25 and 250 nm were obtained on 316L SS surfaces by anodic oxidation (anodization). Results demonstrated that the fabrication of NDs increased the surfac...
Enhancement of mechanical properties of co-doped hydroxyapatite coatings on pre-treated Ti6Al4V
Hacıoğlu, Tuğçe; Evis, Zafer; Tezcaner, Ayşen (2017-10-27)
Titanium and its alloys are commonly preferred implant materials for hard tissue applications. Today more than 4.4 million people have an internal fixation device and over 1.3 million people possess an artificial joint. Not only is there high demand for orthopedic surgeries for new patients every year, but there is also an even higher demand for patients who must receive revision surgeries. In order to enhance the properties of titanium based implant materials, different pretreatment and coating techniques ...
