A number of modifications have been developed to enhance surface cleanliness, wettability, and cytocompatibility and to prevent bacterial adhesion on materials for prosthetic support of dental implants. Among them, ultraviolet light and non-thermal plasma are promising methods. This study compares the effects of both methods on machined titanium, zirconia, and modified polyetheretherketone (BioHPP®) surfaces using mouse fibroblast (L929) and human gingival fibroblast (HGFs) cell lines. UV light and oxygen plasma-treated surfaces were more favorable to cells than non-treated surfaces. View this paper.
