Figure 1: In vivo implant rat tibia PBA cross-sectional results at 0.8 mm and 0.1 mm from the implant surface at midcanal showing highly significant increases for the bisphenyl-polymer/carbon-fiber composite compared to titanium-6-4 alloy. (a) Comparisons for cross-sectional Group Mean PBA out to 0.8 mm from the implant, . (b) Comparisons for cross-sectional Group Mean PBA out to 0.1 mm from the implant, . The PBA was averaged from both distal and mesial implant surfaces separately at both 0.8 mm and 0.1 mm. All data presented as the set average ± one standard deviation error bars. The sample size was 10 for all groups.
