Unique Nanoscale Topography Created Through OsseoSpeed Surface Modification

When the fluoride modified OsseoSpeed implant was launched in 2004 it
was based on solid pre-clinical and clinical documentation and in order to fully understand and utilize the full potential of OsseoSpeed, Astra Tech has continued to search further.

Scientific results from in vitro studies show that human mesenchymal
stem cells (hMSC) grown on the OsseoSpeed surface differentiate to a
larger extent to osteoblasts. The gene expression further shows that
the cells that grow on OsseoSpeed mineralize. Similarly, significantly higher expression of bone formation markers have also been identified in the tissue close to OsseoSpeed implants in vivo, demonstrating that the bone response to this implant surface is favorable and can be identified. ..........
