Great importance in getting success in implant dentistry comes from the implant shape and from the number, the step and the profile of the coils that cover the fixture. Another critical factor for the achievement of osseointegration is the implant surface itself. Though commercially pure titanium is universally considered the first-rate material for osseointegrated implant dentistry, its surface characteristics have been extensively investigated and many surface treatments proposed for dental implant applications. A new titanium implant surface is proposed as able to increase the contact area between the implant and the host bone and to improve the biological response of the osteogenic cells. We plan to study in vitro the osteoblast-like SaOS-2 cells proliferation and attachment on a new pure titanium surface
