Magnesium and its alloys are not normally used as bioresorbable temporary implants due to their high and uncontrolled degradation rate in a physiological liquid environment. The improvement of corrosion resistance to simulated body fluids (SBF) of a magnesium alloy (AZ31) coated with poly-β-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) was investigated. Scanning electron...

Background: Full ceramic or metal custom-made root analogue implants (RAIs) are made by replicating the natural tooth geometry. However, it may lead to the stress shielding of the surrounding bone, and an RAI is unable to easily achieve primary stability. Therefore, to improve primary stability and reduce stress shielding, RAI porous structures ar...
