RBM Process

RBM

Macroscopic and microscopic properties of Dental Implant surfaces play a major role in their osseous healing process. Roughened implant surfaces provide increased retention strength. The topography, down to the micrometer, affects the attachment and growth of bone cells.

Noris Medical applies the RBM (Resorbable Blast Media) technique in order to induce the sub-micro topography. The material used for the RBM process is Calcium Phosphate, which is a highly resorbable and biocompatible material.
Usage of Calcium Phosphate as the blasting material also eliminates the need of using strong acids for the removal of blasting material remnants.

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.

 

Implant’s Neck Surface Treatment

In accordance with clinical needs or treatment preferences, Tuff, Tuff TT and Onyx implants
are available in two neck texture versions: Machined surface or RBM treated surface.
