3. The plasma coating of a Titanium Dental implant (TPS) is done to1 Mark

A. To increase its acceptance in boneB. To make the Implant Biocompatible
C. To avoid contamination of the ImplantD. To improve implant anchorage power in bone

Applying calcium phosphate (CaP) coating on implants improves the osteoconductive (osseointegration) properties. Different methods have been developed to coat metal implants with CaP layer such as plasma spraying, biomimetic and electrophoretic deposition. By means of plasma polymerization, positively charged, nanometric thin coating can be applied to implant surfaces. Titanium plasma sprayed (TPS) surface results in increased surface area and it has been proposed that TPS improves implant anchorage power in bone (Osseo integration).

5. Pharmacological agent that inhibits the differentiation of osteoclasts through its action on RANK
1 Mark


Carranza 11th ed 205] RANKL means Receptor Activator of Nuclear factor Kappa-B Ligand. It is a member of the TNF super family. The RAN KL system is an essential mediator of osteoclast formation, function and survival. RANKL binds RANK on osteoclasts or osteoclast precursors to stimulate differentiation into osteoclasts. It is also essential for the survival of osteoclasts and thereby playing critical role in bone resorption. Osteoprotegerin (OPG) acts as RAN KL inhibitor and prevents the recruitment or differentiation of osteoclasts. Thus they affect the pool of mature osteoclasts and their activity. High RANKL and low OPG levels are reported in sites with active periodontal breakdown compared to sites with healthy gingiva.
