BACKGROUND Researchers have attempted to enhance titanium osseointegration by modifying its surface properties, including via H(2)O(2) pre-treatment, with reported treatment regimes varying from minutes/hours, to weeks. OBJECTIVE This study examined the effects of various H(2)O(2) treatments on titanium surface topography/roughness, chemical composition/oxide thickness, hydrophilicity and plasma protein adsorption. MATERIALS AND METHODS Titanium discs were treated with 30% H(2)O(2) for 0-24… CONTINUE READING
