Abstract:
With increasingly higher performance requirements and health care costs associated with dental and orthopaedic bone-anchored implants there is a need to improve the osseointegration of Ti implants. Small alterations in nanotopography feature dimensions and arrangement has recently been shown able to differentiate human mesenchymal stem cells into an osteoblastic lineage, thus showing potential for using nanotopography to improve osseointegration of Ti implants.
