TEHRAN (ISNA) - An Iranian scientist at Malaysian National University of Malaysia Alireza Yaghoubi has developed mechanism for compatibility of implant with jawbone, using microwaves.

“When implant is put in the jaw, its positioning is quite important. Because it will lead to reject the implant and the infections. That is why the implant’s compatibility with jawbone is quite important.”

“We added titanium powder to the intended implant mold exposed to microwaves. The implant’s surface would be similar to lint.”

Putting the implant in jawbone for one month, the bone cells would be inside the lint and desirable stick between the bone and implant is created, he said.

Cells need to get stick to a surface to grow, he said, adding, the surface of existing implants is smooth which makes it difficult for cells to get stick to the surface.

The results of the study which has been conducted jointly by some US universities have been published in American Chemical Society.
