CARDIENT® TIX


We have developed a specially designed system to coat dental implants with TiX. With a TiX coating license, production capacity up to 1000 implants a day can be coated. We also provide clean room facilities for dental implants’ coating analysis, validation and processing. Also, a packaging solution developed at our end provides long term preservation of the coating properties with ease of handling and transport.

TiX Coating has many advantages:


It is super-hydrophilic



Hydrophilicity retention time above 2 years



Extremely good osseointegration and Bone-Implant Contact (BIC)


Attachment of therapeutic substances on carbon coated implant surfaces


Antimicrobial photocatalytic functionality also for industrial applications


Excellent hardness



Optimal packaging with high shelf-life of more than 2 years




Experiments of  implants with  TiX  show high bone-implant-contact (BIC), cell adhesion and cell proliferation rates. Also the surface promotes growth of bones faster than state-of–the–art implant surfaces. In vivo experiment results show that the integration of the implant had enhanced substantially with increase of  indwelling time. As a result, the torque required to remove the implant after 4 weeks of indwelling time increased by 50%.


TiX provides a new dimension to implant surfaces by introducing photocatalytic characteristics. The photo-catalytic surface of  TiX, upon exposure to UV light, disintegrates bacteria, viruses, and toxins present on the surface. Thus, TiX  helps reducing the  infections caused by contaminants on implant surfaces.

In vitro experiments reveal that the bacterial colony growth reduces by 100 times when coated with TiX..
