Correlation Between Surface Hydrophilicity and Osteoblastic Differentiation on Microgrooved Titanium Substrata

Journal of Oral Implantology, 03/30/2012

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.
