The titanium alloy used to manufacture GDT implants complies with ASTM
F136-8e1: "Requirements for Forged Titanium Alloy Ti 6Al-4V ELI for Surgical Implantation".
This alloy, in addition to titanium, contains 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium.
Due to its excellent biocompatibility with the human body, the alloy is widely used in medicine, especially in implantology, and is an ideal material for dental implants.
Ti 6Al-4V ELI has high fatigue strength, low weight, excellent corrosion resistance, and high bending strength.
This alloy surpasses pure titanium in mechanical properties, particularly in fatigue strength and resistance to cracking.
In addition to dental implantation, Ti 6Al-4V ELI has long established itself as a material for joint prostheses, devices for fixation during bone fusion, surgical clamps, as well as vessels for cryogenic storage.
Ti 6Al-4V ELI alloy has a unique osseointegration property.
It means that body tissue cells use the implant as a substrate for their growth.
As a result, the implant is ingrown in the place where it was installed. Titanium is the only metal that has the properties of integration with the body.
This feature of titanium opens up wide possibilities for its use in dentistry. Titanium implants are most in demand in dental implantology and have stable success due to the properties of osseointegration.
When bone cells attach to the surface of the implant, a structural and functional connection is formed between the body and the initially foreign body established in it.
The two most prominent physical properties of titanium are its high strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance.
If we add here the lack of toxicity and the ability to resist the action of any body fluids, it becomes clear why titanium is so in demand in medicine.
The titanium also has high wear resistance and durability.
Another useful property of titanium is its lack of magnetic properties, which allows an MRI scan to be performed without any problem.
GDT Dental Implants:
Made of biocompatible alloy Ti6Al-4V ELI.
Pure titanium with superior mechanical properties.
Raw materials are imported by leading American suppliers.
GDT Implants' unique and improved multi-stage cleaning process gently extracts residues left from manufacturing, leaving the surface free of contamination.
The success of dental implantation largely depends on the composition and surface cleanliness of the material from which the implants are made. GDT implants' cleaning process provides a stable oxide film layer on the surface of the titanium alloy, which passivates this surface and, having a thickness of only 3-5 nm, does not mask its microtopography, allowing the cells of the body to freely use it as a substrate, which is the key to successful implant engraftment.
Multi-level cleaning of the surface of GDT implants removes contaminants that appear during their manufacture, allowing you to achieve a perfectly clean surface.
A unique process for obtaining a perfectly clean surface, based on protocols and standards for the production of semiconductor electronic components, is currently applied to all GDT Implants' dental implants manufactured.
The results of the application of these technologies were confirmed by analyzing the surface and chemical composition of the material by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and using a scanning electron microscope (50x for an initial assessment of surface cleanliness; 1000x and 5000x for determining its microstructure), as well as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy.
