Even the decontamination process used for IML implants was developed in collaboration with the Research and Development team of the Polytechnic University of Turin and the Department of Surgical Sciences at the University of Turin’s CIR Dental School. This is a two-stage process, the second stage being composed of passing the implants through a plasma reactor.
• Objective: inorganic waste removal, mechanical machining, and surface treatments leave residues such as
carbon and aluminium, universally considered possible causes of implants failing to osteointegrate;
• Procedure: liquid solution treatment;
• Objective: organic contamination removal, such as removal of pro-inflammatory agents;
• Procedure: treatment using gas cleaning agents applied via an electro-chemical process performed in the plasma reactor.
