In the 4-6 weeks period, (period of Alizarin Red S injections(ARS) the healing is expected to be complete in close proximity to the implant, establishing histologically assessible bone implant contact.
High-velocity oxy-fuel spraying (HVOF) and detonation gun (D-Gun) are two combustion spray techniques that have been used to coat bone implants. HVOF [43] is a spray process in which combustion is achieved in a pressurized chamber once oxygen and a fuel gas (i.e., methane) are injected, resulting in temperatures of up to 3,700 K that then exit at speeds up to 2,000 m/s through a de Laval-type nozzle.
Factors that must be considered for future implants are refining prosthetic design and achieving a greater degree of initial bone implant stability.
