The Prama implant transgingival neck undergoes an anodic passivation process that gives it the characteristic golden pale yellow colour, so that it is mimetic under the soft tissues also when the patient’s biotype is thin. The pre-made post also undergoes the same treatment, so as to create continuity between implant and prosthesis.
- But does the anodizing process produce any reaction in the tissues it comes into contact with?
- Some tests recently carried out at the University of Padua - pending publication - confirm that anodized titanium does not increase the accumulation of bacterial plaque not only when compared with non-anodized, but also compared with zirconia. Moreover the results show that cleaning with low-concentration chlorhexidine can limit bacterial adhesion and proliferation.
