Role of Photofunctionalization in Mitigating Impaired Osseointegration Associated with Type 2 Diabetes in Rats
Yoshihiko Sugita, DDS, PhD/Yuuma Honda, DDS/Ikuro Kato, DDS/Katsutoshi Kubo, DDS, PhD/Hatsuhiko Maeda, DDS, PhD/Takahiro Ogawa, DDS, PhD

Investigators have identified the hydrophobic nature of titanium dental implants. This characteristic may delay or prevent osseointegration in some situations. Exposure of an implant to a source of ultraviolet light may transform a hydrophobic to a hydrophilic surface, which, as described in this article, may influence osseointegration in biologically compromised subjects. This featured article presents interesting information on this relatively new technology.
