Degradation and bioactivity studies of Mg membranes for dental surgery

  • Bioresorbable materials are under investigation due to their promising properties for applications as implant material. This study is about the degradation and bioactivity behaviour of magnesium foils, which allegorize dental membranes. The degradation behaviour including pitting corrosion during immersion tests can be precisely observed using micro-computed tomography. Using the bioactivity test according to Kokubo, it is shown that magnesium has strong Ca-phosphate layer formation correlated with high degradation. Therefore, magnesium foils appear to hold a great potential for bone implant application.
