Title:
Laser-modified titanium implants for improved cell adhesion. 
Abstract:
Concerning dental implant systems, a main problem is the adhesion of peri-implant mucosa in the cervical region. The aim of the present study was to use a laser for modifying titanium implants to promote mucosal adhesion, which is indispensable as a biological barrier against bacterial infection. By the use of a KrF excimer laser, it was possible to induce a holey structure on the polished area of the implant surface, which was analysed by a scanning electron microscope. In addition, the attachm...    »
