Comparison between two photomicrographs, obtained by scanning electron microscopy (under magnification of 4,000x), of the root surface of a tooth and the nanotexturized surface of an osseointegrated implant (NanoTite, BIOMET 3i). Note the strong similarity between the rugosity created by nature over the root cementum (A) and the texture of the implant surface (B).
