Titanium dioxide (TiO(2)) nanotubes can accelerate the adhesion and differentiation of osteoblasts, yet little is known how this nano-modified implant surface affects osseointegration at molecular level in vivo. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of TiO(2) nanotubes with different diameters (30 nm, 70 nm and 100 nm) on biological attachment mechanism of implants to bone in vivo by studying the gene expression and bone formation around the implants. The histological features… CONTINUE READING
