Comparison of osteoblast spreading on microstructured dental implant surfaces and cell behaviour in an explant model of osseointegration. A scanning electron microscopic study.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To compare interactions between rat calvarial osteoblasts and titanium dental implants with different microstructured surfaces. MATERIAL AND METHODS Seven commercially available implants were used. Surfaces included plasma-sprayed, grit-blasted and/or acid-etched, smooth-machined and anodised titanium. Two methods were used to compare cell… (More)
