RBM treatment process is achieved by “high-speed particle blasting”, using suitable & resorbable
hardened Calcium Phosphate particles.
Usage of Calcium Phosphate as the blasting material also eliminates the need of using strong acids for the removal of blasting material remnants.
Following the mechanical abrasion, leftover calcium particles are cleaned off by etching the surface
with organic acid of low concentration, leaving no residue and avoiding implant’s titanium surface
Successful osteogenesis around the implant, is obtained due to created homogenous pore diameter
and uniform surface.
Calcium Phosphate is a resorbable, biocompatible substance that does not transfix deeply into the implants surface and does not lodge inside the physically created crater.
In case there are Calcium Phosphate leftover residue on the implant surface, it adds to the osteogenic value of the implant due to the osteoconductive properties it possesses, allowing it to be completely resorbed and replaced by new bone cells.
Implant surfaces that have been RBM treated are considered to be more osteoconductive.
Research showed higher percentage of bone to implant contact around RBM treated implants.
This finding could be especially useful in severe clinical conditions like poor bone quality and in cases of early or immediate loading.
