PURPOSE Titanium is a primary metallic biomaterial used in load-bearing orthopedic or dental implants because of its favorable mechanical properties and osseointegration capability. This article reviews the current status of surface optimization techniques for titanium implants, whether such concepts are in the form of sufficiently evidence-based, and highlights the related experimental tools. STUDY SELECTION A strong emphasis was placed on the enhanced biological responses to titanium… CONTINUE READING
