Biomet, Inc. issued a press release on March 8, 2007 regarding its new NanoTite™ dental implant that adds a nanoscale surface of calcium phosphate to its prior OSSEOTITE™ implant to greatly increase surface area and accompanying bone adhesion.  Unlike Astra Tech’s OsseoSpeed™ implant material, this product appears to use an applied nanocoating to achieve its performance goals.
