SPARC (green)—RUNX2 (red)—DAPI (blue) staining of SAOS-2 cells were incubated for 48 h on polished and grit-blasted ZCe-A, alumina, and 3Y-TZP samples. The composition effect is more widespread on ZCe-A cells and showed improved osteogenic marker expression. With regard to the roughness effect, grit-blasted surfaces (especially ZCe-A) favor cellular proliferation and differentiation. ZCe-A dental implants were used in a pilot study in dogs and showed excellent performance in terms of BIC and interaction with soft tissues.
