Implant surface plays a crucial role in improving osseointegration and long-term implant life. When the implant comes in contact with the bone tissue, the bone marrow mesenchymal cells interact with the implant surface and the surface properties such as morphology, wettability, mechanical properties and chemistry influences cell migration, proliferation and differentiation. Different surface modification strategies such as ceramic coatings, surface dealloying, and surface topography modifications for improving osteointegration have been investigated. Read More
