Title: Development of nanostructured ceramic biomaterials within the ZrO2-CeO2-Al2O3 system for application in dental implantology

Directors: Dra. Catuxa Prado Cueto and Dr. Adolfo Fernández Valdés

Date: November 9, 2015

Venue: Facultad de Ciencias de la Universidad de Oviedo

Abstract: This Ph.D. thesis was carried out to study and understand the influence of different parameters, such as material type and surface properties, on the biological response that is triggered at the cell/biomaterial interface upon implantation to, ultimately, learn how to fine-tune these specifications to favour the desired biological reaction which, in this case, is osseous differentiation. The primary focus of this research is a novel ceramic composite (Z10Ce-A) that presents improved mechanical properties with respect to 3Y-TZP, the most widespread ceramic material in dental implantology.
