** ActivFluor is a fluoride modified surface. Various fluoride modified surfaces have been shown in multiple studies to generate a higher bone-to-implant contact (BIC) and higher torque out force significantly earlier than surfaces which are only blasted and not fluoride treated. The enhanced apposition of osteoblasts is primarily achieved by a modified nano topography of the implant surface and not by additional chemical activity. Click here for SEM images.
