Correlation Between Surface Hydrophilicity and Osteoblastic Differentiation on Microgrooved Titanium Substrata
Journal of Oral Implantology, 03/30/2012Lee SW et al.
Multiple stepwise regression analysis determined the surface hydrophilicity of titanium (Ti) as the influential factor on alkaline phosphatase activity. This study indicates that surface microgrooves and acid etching on Ti substrata enhance surface hydrophilicity, leading to increased alkaline phosphatase activity.
