In vitro studies have proved the topographic dependency upon osteogenesis on titanium plate by investigating the cell-adhesion, -shape, -proliferation, -differentiation, ALP activity and osteocalcin production of osteogenic stem cells, MG36, MC3T3-E1 and wild strains of bone formative cells from animal and human. However, this in vivo study on bone growth around cp titanium dental implants under masticatory loading did not demonstrate significant difference among the different surface roughness in the range of Ra 0.4–1.9 μm, Rz 2.8–11.2 μm, Rmax 3.6–28.1 μm and Sm 2.9–41.0 μm, which was estimated by measuring the bone contacts, bone occupancies and bone bonding strengths at the implant/bone marrow interface.

It is revealed that the topographic dependency on the osteogenetic activity is apt to be covered with wide variation in bone healing potential under the clinical condition with functional biting load.
