Abstract

Surface quality is one characteristic of dental implants known to control long-term stability after in vivo implantation. Various surface preparation techniques exist to control surface roughness. Specific protocols for quantifying the resulting roughness are varied and dependent upon the specific parameter produced by the particular measurement device. In this study, measures of accuracy and precision associated with dental implant profilometry techniques are determined.
