The dental implant is being widely used for the purpose of both function and aesthetic rehabilitations. Endosseous dental implants are available with various surface characteristics ranging from relatively smooth machined surfaces to more roughened surfaces by coating, sand blasting, and acid treatments or by a combination of the treatments. The ultimate goal of modern implantology is to achieve proper osseointegration, which is largely dependent on the macro- as well as micro- design of the implant. HA-coating of implant surface is a predictable means for producing the micro-design. It has got the ability to act as osteoconductive matrix on which the growth of new bone can take place thus enhances osseointegration when implanted in osseous sites. Alteration of the surface coating due to torque force during insertion into osteotomised bone can hamper osseointegration. Therefore, an experiment has been carried out to determine the surface changes of dental implants occurring during insertion into cadaver goat jaw and observed under scanning electron microscope.
