Hydrophilicity may improve bone healing around an implant but may also enhance soft tissue adhesion which may prevent periimplantitis. The project aims to evaluate the in vivo response to various implant surfaces with different degree of hydrophilicity.  Another objective of the study is to develop an entirely new surface that has both nanotopographical and photocatalytic amphiphilic features present and accessible on the implant surface, and to clarify the biological interactions between different aspects of the implant surface such as chemistry, topography, and physics and the surrounding tissue. This project together with the Straumann company is to one part coincidence of Mariko Hayashis PhD program.

Beskrivning på svenska

Projektet avser undersöka hydrofila implantat ytor samt deras nanotopografi. Både vätbarhet och topografi kan positivt påverka ben- och mjukvävnadsinläkning mot implantatyta därför har projektet en direkt klinisk relevans. Försök kommer att utföras in vitro såväl som in vivo.
