Courtesy of Prof. This family of methods also includes scanning tunneling microscopy, STM tunneling current contrast and atomic force microscopy AFM interatomic force contrast [ 72 ]. In practice, AFM has the advantage over more traditional methods such as in that surfaces can be measured in the presence of hydration or even liquid water in vivo, and there is no need for staining as in the optical microscopies, or even worse, the high vacuum and conductive films needed for SEM studies [ 73 ].
The rapidly increasing use of ultrasound to detect and monitor bone pathology, in particular osteoporosis, has led to the development of several commercially available devices.
Such devices typically measure the rate of change of attenuation of ultrasound with frequency broadband ultrasound attenuation or SUA between 0. Porous Biomaterials in Orthopaedic and Dental Applications 4.
Cell reaction to porous structures It has been demonstrated that cells can react in vitro to objects as small as 5 nm, which are — fold smaller in size than the cell itself [ 76 ]. Microporosity results in larger surface area that is believed to contribute to higher bone-inducing protein adsorption as well as to ion exchange and bone-like apatite formation by dissolution and re-precipitation.
Surface roughness enhances attachment, proliferation and differentiation of anchorage-dependent bone forming cells [ 77 ]. Rough apatitic surfaces appear to enhance osteoclastic attachment compared with smooth ones [ 78 ]. Grooved surfaces influence osteoblast guidance, as does the groove profile and topography, independent of the chemical nature of the substrate [ 79 ].
On the other hand, on micro and macroporous calcium phosphate ceramics, osteoblasts sense the surface micro-porosity and can bridge even large pores many times larger than fully spread osteoblasts [ 80 ].
In vitro microfeatures with specific shapes can influence the cellular activities, including osteogenic differentiation [ 81 ]. In vivo, the surface micro topography can significantly affect tissue neo-formation. For example, the initial surface roughness of the titanium prostheses greatly influences early bone formation and contact with the implant [ 82 , 83 ].
Other reports on the cellular interactions with specific nano-patterned substrates of various compositions have shown that nano-shaped holes can also i control cell life and death [ 88 ] and ii orient cell commitment towards osteogenic lineage [ 89 , 90 ]. Park et al. Arnold et al. Demirel et al. They found that nanoscale topography, especially when compared with flat surface, enhances the cell adhesion of fibroblast cells [ 93 ].
The influence of surface nano-topography on cell behavior is mediated via changes in the orientation and conformation of proteins that interact with the nanotextured substrate. Porous solid structures allow a strong adhesion of cells onto the surfaces. The asymmetry and the presence of concavities may increase the wettability of the substrate, and therefore enhance cell adhesion and survival. Bone healing, ectopic bone formation and bone cell support by porous biomaterials A variety of animal studies using different pore sizes and distributions showed healing of bone defects with the help of porous materials [ 17 , 95 , 96 , 97 , 98 , 99 , , , , , ].
Brittleness and slow degradation rates are disadvantages associated with their use. Gong et al. Upon retrieval, the silica-rich scaffolds were almost filled with new bone and showed higher restorability than scaffolds with lower silica content [ ]. Biological effects of higher and lower porosity Higher porosity should result in increased cell proliferation, since pore space increases with porosity and facilitates transport of oxygen and nutrients. Indeed, more tissue ingrowth and new bone formation occurred in areas with higher porosity after implantation in rabbit craniums.
Scaffolds formed with four axial and four radial macroscopic channels also enhance osteogenesis [ ]. This result was likely due to the larger surface area that resulted in higher ion exchange and bone-inducing factor adsorption. The necessity for porosity in bone regeneration has been shown by Kuboki et al. Thus, due to the absence of any substantial report on the beneficial effects of lower porosity scaffolds in vivo, we can safely conclude that highly porous implants facilitate tissue integration.
Mechanical properties of porous biomaterials However, the trade-off of better biological properties due to higher porosity is diminished mechanical strength, which defines a practical upper limit for pore size and porosity.
Studies have shown that both Co—Cr alloys and Ti—6Al—4V alloys experience drastic reductions in fatigue strengths when fabricated as porous coatings on solid core structures [ , , , ]. It has been shown that the high cycle fatigue strength of porous coated Ti—6A1—4V alloy is approximately one-third that of the solid alloy equivalent shape, probably even less in fully porous matrices [ ]. The bond sites between the coatings and implant have irregular geometries that can act as stress concentrations.
This is sometimes referred to as the notch effect. This notch effect is a localised condition that affects implant strength in the region of the porous coating [ ]. Cook et al. Ishikawa and Asaoka concluded that pressurized curing increases mechanical strength of calcium phosphate cements by decreasing porosity [ ].
James et al. Interfacial integrity between particles and matrix is the key for good mechanical properties. Sunnegardh et al. Eighty percent porosity was the critical point between inter-connectivity and mechanical properties of scaffolds made by photo-crosslinking of poly propylene fumarate as well; the toughest scaffolds with fully inter- connected pores fabricated by this technique had an elastic modulus of 2.
Although higher molecular weight 1. These scaffolds induced ectopic bone formation when implanted subcutaneously in mice. Zhang et al. Implant stability is not only a function of strength, but also depends on the fixation established with surrounding tissues. Due to this mechanical mismatch, bone is insufficiently loaded and becomes stress shielded, which eventually leads to bone resorption [ , , ]. Porous metals represent a promising means of reducing stiffness mismatch and avoiding stress shielding effects.
To overcome the mechanical limitations of porous materials, novel composite materials have been investigated. They found significant bone growth on designed scaffolds for all pores, with no statistical difference between pore sizes. However, unlike the single pore diameter in the designed scaffolds, non-designed scaffolds have a range of pore sizes, which may explain the different results [ ].
In a study by Hulbert et al. Bone ingrowth was similar in all the pore sizes. Similarly, smaller pores 0. Increasing pore size from In small diameter tunnels chondrogenesis occurred before osteogenesis; in contrast, in tunnels with large diameter bone was formed directly. The enhanced vascularization that was observed in tunnels with the larger diameters resulted in higher oxygen tension and supply of nutrients, conditions that favored direct osteogenesis. Porous materials in dental applications While it has been demonstrated that porous materials can be used to establish an effective means of implant stabilization by tissue ingrowth, it has been shown that extreme caution should be exercised in applying this concept to dental implants placed perimucosally.
The surface microporosity that is adjacent to the gingival cuff results in an inflammatory reaction that prevents formation of an effective biological seal. Clinical failure soon follows. Observations show that an effective biological seal cannot be established with materials possessing crown and cervical surface microporosity [ ]. Another problem in dental application of porous biomaterials is the aggressive chemical environment in the mouth, due to the greater availability of oxygen and acidic food stuffs, favoring corrosion.
Increased surface areas, such as in porous implants, have shown higher corrosion rates when tested in vitro compared to conventional nonporous-coated implants [ , ]. Corrosion can severely limit the fatigue life and ultimate strength of the material, leading to the mechanical failure of the implant. There is a low but definite prevalence of corrosion-related fracture of implants [ ]. Pitting corrosion of cobalt based alloys leads to the release of carcinogens into the body [ , , ].
Enhanced metal ion release could increase the probability of metal sensitisation and associated allergic responses in individuals could increase the susceptibility to tumour formation. Pitting corrosion is a common problem with SS implants. Introduction of ultra-high clean grades such as LVM and nitrogen additions have reduced the risk of pitting corrosion.
Though titanium and its alloys are highly resistant to pitting corrosion in different in vivo conditions encountered, they undergo corrosion in high fluoride solutions in dental cleaning procedures. Future Prospective and Outlook 5. Dental materials Investigation into the effect of filler on dental material properties would be beneficial in the development of restorative dental material [ ]. Further work is required to devise a method of reducing flaws and initiation of micro-cracks, and means of creating stronger interfacial bonding [ ].
A topic in the research field of joining that needs to be addressed is the cementation of dental restorations on natural teeth or implants.
This part of the restorative procedure is vital to the successful application of biomaterials in dentistry and the development of improved adhesive systems or the utilization of biological mechanisms.
Furthermore, suitable materials must be developed for fabricating abutments similar to those used in conventional metal systems [ ]. Bone tissue engineering The challenge in tissue engineering bone and cartilage is not only to design, but also to fabricate reproducible bioresorbable 3D scaffolds, which function for a certain period of time under load-bearing conditions [ Electronic submission of articles On-line refereeing of all articles submitted in electronic form Fast reviews Rapid times to publication No page charges Free color where justified Distinguished editorial board Availability in print and online editions.
