Figure 3

Backscattered electron scanning electron microscopy. High amounts of well-mineralised bone are observed within and outside the (a) Ep and (b) Ep+An implant threads. (c–f) Resin cast etching and direct visualisation of osteocytes forming a vast network of the lacunocanalicular system in close proximity to the (c, e) Ep and (d, f) Ep+An implant surfaces.
