Early osseointegration is important to achieve initial stability after implant placement. We have previously reported that atmospheric-pressure plasma treatment confers superhydrophilicity to titanium. Herein, we examined the effects of titanium implant material, which was conferred superhydrophilicity by atmospheric-pressure plasma treatment, on the surrounding tissue in rat femur. Control and experimental groups included untreated screws and those irradiated with atmospheric-pressure plasma using piezobrush, respectively. The femurs of 8-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were used for in vivo experiments. Various data prepared from the Micro-CT analysis showed results showing that more new bone was formed in the test group than in the control group. Similar results were shown in histological analysis. Thus, titanium screw, treated with atmospheric-pressure plasma, could induce high hard tissue differentiation even at the in vivo level. This method may be useful to achieve initial stability after implant placement. View Full-Text
