Glass ceramic composites - to be used for coatings on titanium implants - based on leucite glass with elevated flux content and added hydroxyapatite or a mixture of hydroxyapatite and fluorite are examined. It is established that pastes containing no more than 30% hydroxyapatite in leucite glass are the best materials for denture coatings. Pastes with a higher content of hydroxyapatite Ca 10(PO 4) 6(OH) 2(> 30%) are recommended for coatings on intramaxillary titanium implants.
