Abstract

The reduction of pH around implants due to the degradation products of copolymers adversely affect the biocompatibility of these implants. In vitro studies showed that three basic salts: calcium carbonate (CC), sodium bicarbonate (SBC), and calcium hydroxyapatite, can successfully control the decrease in pH.
