# The plasma coating of a Titanium Dental implant (TPS) is done to:
A. To increase its acceptance in bone
B. To make the Implant Biocompatible
C. To avoid contamination of the implant
D. To improve implant anchorage power in bone


The correct answer is: D. To improve implant anchorage power in bone.

Applying calcium phosphate (CaP) coating on implants improves the osteoconductive
(osseointegration) properties. Different methods have been developed to coat metal
implants with CaP layer such as plasma spraying, biomimetic and electrophoretic
deposition. By means of plasma polymerization, positively charged, nanometric thin coating
can be applied to implant surfaces. Titanium plasma sprayed (TPS) surface results in
increased surface area and it has been proposed that TPS improves implant anchorage
power in bone (Osseo integration).
