The present study evaluated the effect of anodized surface implants and combined surface implants with calcium phosphate (CaP) coating on gap defect healing in dogs. The anodized + coated group showed higher bone-to-implant contact (BIC) and bone density (BD) than controls (anodized only) or the sandblasted/acid-etched (SLA) + anodized + coated group. The SLA + anodized + coated group showed lower BIC than the anodized + coated group and lower BD than anodized + coated or control groups. Anodized + coated implants showed good osseointegration in surgically created gap healing, but SLA + anodized + coated implants appeared less predictable in achieving osseointegration because of the offset effects of their advantages.
