Increasing the surface energy of implants in a dental office

Jan Willem Vaartjes

In the lecture “Increasing the surface energy of implants” Jan Willem Vaartjes reports on advantages and shows practical applications of plasma treatment: “Since 2017 we started with different methods to activate the implants to create a super hydrophilic surface. What do we know from the literature? What are the different methods and what did we learn. Since implants are already successful, does it really make a difference? In this presentation, I will try to answer these questions and also try to shed some light on future developments. “

Multimodal Therapy Using Cold Atmospheric Plasma for Multi-tissue Regeneration

Prof. Fei Tan

Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) is an emerging biomedical technology exemplified by its antimicrobial and anti-neoplastic potentials. On the other hand, acidic fibroblast growth factor (aFGF) has been a long-standing potent mitogen for cells from various origins. In this study, we are the first to develop a multimodal treatment combining the aforementioned physicochemical and pharmacological treatments and investigated their individual and combined effects on wound healing, angiogenesis, neurogenesis, and osteogenesis.

Bioactivation of implants by cold plasma

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr. Ralf Smeets

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr. Ralf Smeets explains the comparison of the effects of cold plasma activation of implant surfaces with a chair-side procedure in practice.
Data collected regarding changes in physicochemical surface properties such as topography, roughness, surface chemistry and wettability) as well as cell responses such as cell attachment, morphology, viability, proliferation and cytotoxicity of murine osteoblast progenitor cells under standardized conditions in vitro will be presented.

Furthermore, relevant points regarding “purification” in the sense of removal of carbon metabolites, increase of surface energy and wettability of implant surfaces will be discussed. As an outlook, questions such as whether cold plasma activation could optimize osseointegration and/or peri-implant soft tissue attachment or whether cold plasma devices could be helpful tools for the dentist/implantologist in complex cases such as immediate loading or compromised patients will be addressed.
