Dental implants are widely used for replacement of teeth and correction of defects in maxillary and mandibular bone. Their effectiveness is largely dependent upon biostability and osteointegration between the bone and implant. One of the major causes of dental implant failure is aseptic loosening or resorption of bone at the interface [2]. In order to diminish such failures, coatings and surface roughening are used to enhance osteointegration and biostability between the bone and the implant [3].
