When bacteria get in contact with the nanostructured surface of the implant they can only weakly adhere or even die due to mechanical effects caused by the nanostructures. This way the inital bacterial contaminations can be reduced and the biofilm formation is slowed down.
The special feature of our surface structure is the excellent mechanical stability against pressure and shearing loads.
As a result, the structure cannot simply be removed as is the case with other coatings.
The nanoshape surface technology and manufacturing process were both filed for a patent in 2019. nanoshape constantly works on the developement of the technology to further increase the benefits for the patients.
Like pure titanium the surface structure is extremely biocompatible and has been tested according to DIN EN ISO 10993 and show no signs of cytotoxic effects.
Suitable for mass production
The specially developed process makes it possible to provide any three-dimensional shape of implants evenly with our nanostructuring. At the same time, a large number of components can be structured at once.
Our technology has already been certified for components of dental implant systems as part of a pilot study for dental prosthetics.
