SEM images of the geometry (A, B) and surface topography at low (C, D) and high (E - H) magnification of the threaded regions of Implants I and II.
Implants presented a similar geometry, but a distinct microtopography.
Implant I presented an irregularly rough morphology with different sized cavities and flat areas and Implant II exhibited a relatively homogeneous microporous surface.
