The use of implants in the oral and maxillofacial skeleton continues to expand and since then implant surfaces have been modified in various ways to improve biocompatibility and accelerate osseointegration, which results in a shorter edentulous period for a patient.

Such modified surfaces demonstrate faster and stronger osseointegration than the turned commercially pure titanium surface.
