We developed novel biointerfaces for titanium implants, which simultaneously and uniquely show very high antimicrobial activity and bioactivity. Our interfaces are composed of gallium titanate (GT) accompanied by rutile and anatase. They slowly release 3.75 ppm of Ga ions for up to 7 days and formed apatite within 3 days. The antibacterial activity was shown on the GT. The multifunctional interfaces will be particularly useful for orthopaedic and dental implants since it will promote desired implant integration, while preventing infections and inhibiting bone resorption.
