Every year, more than 200 000 orthopaedic prostheses (knee, hip) and a huge (but unknown) number of dental implants are implanted in France. For an optimal efficiency, these implants have to be well integrated in bone. To favour osseointegration, dental implants rely on modification of their surface morphology, while a Calcium-Phosphate coating is often required on the surface of orthopaedic implants.
