The Biomaterials area of the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre (CREB UPC), in collaboration with KLOCKNER, a dental implant company, developed a new bioactive dental implant model called CONTAC-TI, which has an osteoinductive surface and much higher levels of osseointegration than current dental implants. The new implant has received CE marking, and its launch on the market is scheduled for September 2016.

The project was undertaken as part of the KLOCKNER-UPC Chair, which was set up in 2007 and renewed for the fourth time at the end of 2015. As a result of this collaboration, various processes have been developed, introduced and patented for preparing and coating implants and dental accessories to improve osseointegration and bactericidal effects.
