Abstract: This work has shown that it is possible to produce a bioglass-coated, high-strength, fully dense alumina implant system with a variable surface reactivity. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that this system will bond with bone. These two factors, plus the inherent strength of the dense alumina, make this system an attractive candidate as a new prosthetic material.
