Calcium phosphate has received a great deal of attention as a bone regeneration material in the biomedical field. In this study, we investigated the effect of microwave treatment on TiO2 Nano flowers with calcium phosphate deposits to improve protein adsorption. Hierarchical rutile-type TiO2 Nano flowers prepared by the hydrothermal method were immersed in a modified simulated body fluid for 3 days to induce the formation of calcium phosphate, and then irradiated with microwaves Coating a dental implant with CAP / TiNF gives you control over the structure, morphology and thickness of the composite, providing a means to improve its biological properties. The composite materials were characterized by scanning electron microscopy X-ray diffraction field emission transmission electron microscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy respectively Foreword. Calcium phosphate (CAP) has long been used in medicine and dentistry due to its excellent biocompatibility, bioactivity and osteoconductivity.[1] CAP ceramics are very similar in composition to biological tissue and are therefore more biocompatible than other materials used to replace hard tissue. However, such materials have not been extensively studied in terms of protein adsorption and their effects on cell adhesion are unclear of the various surface properties, surface roughness and composition are generally considered to be the most important parameters that alter cell activity. Surface treatment of ceramic materials is required to produce microstructures with the required properties. Sintering affects the properties of materials such as chemical composition and ultrastructure, and affects the biological and mechanical performance of CAP ceramics.
