Introducing Hydrophilicity to Your Implant
Thinner - Nanotechnology Mimicking Nature
HAnano Surface® is a highly crystalline 20 nanometer thin hydroxyapatite layer composed of crystalline hydroxyapatite particles that through shape, composition, and structure mimic human bone tissue. The surface modification can be applied to an implant without changing the underlying surface structure – thereby improving the already existing surface by attracting more bone cells to the surface.
Faster - Catalyzing Biological Response
HAnano Surface significantly improves the hydrophilicity of the implant material which catalyzes the biological response and facilitates absorption of body fluids into small pores and cavities on the implant surface. The nanometer-sized hydroxyapatite crystals enable increased recruitment and attachment of bone cells to the implant, thus accelerating bone growth.
Stronger - Enhancing Osseointegration
HAnano Surface has proven to accelerate osseointegration of implants and enhance early bone growth in more than 30 pre-clinical studies. The surface treatment has shown to increase the implant anchoring strength with 25-80 % depending on implant material, thereby promoting higher success rate.
