BACKGROUND: Currently in dentistry, scientific research has been conducted in the study of dental implants. Being able to optimize dental implants, in all its mechanical and biological components, is the main objective of the research. The purpose of this article was to evaluate the structure and the molecular features of dental implant titanium alloy.
METHODS: Two different internal hexagonal connection systems belonging to FDS76® have been used as sample. Beyond the literature search, fixture and abutment surface through an X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) method have been analyzed.
RESULTS: The surfaces have achieved an excellent level of quality and low impurity, according to commercial pure titanium alloy.
CONCLUSIONS: This information will surely bring useful information to evaluate the quality of this type of alloy and possibly improve its features.


KEY WORDS: Dental implants; Titanium; Prosthodontics; Spectrometry; X-ray emission; Dental materials
