Japanese researchers have developed a coating method that accelerates bonding with bone, which could reduce the burden of orthodontic subperiosteal devices on dental patients, according to a new study in the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials (April 2, 2013).

Orthodontic subperiosteal devices are superior in terms of low invasiveness, but because bonding with bone on the surface of the bone is necessary, a minimum waiting time of approximately three months had been required until medical use was possible, even when coating treatment was performed with hydroxy apatite (HAp).

To shorten this time, researchers at the National Institute for Materials Science at Tokyo Medical and Dental University developed a device shape and a new coating method that realizes in only one month the same bone coverage as after three months with the conventional device, the study authors noted.
