Nd:YAG laser radiation (1.064 nm) accelerates differentiation of osteoblasts to osteocytes on smooth and rough titanium surfaces in vitro


Karoussis, Ioannis K; Kyriakidou, Kyriaki; Psarros, Costas; Lang, Niklaus P; Vrotsos, Ioannis A (2017). Nd:YAG laser radiation (1.064 nm) accelerates differentiation of osteoblasts to osteocytes on smooth and rough titanium surfaces in vitro. Clinical Oral Implants Research, 28(7):785-790.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: A number of studies revealed beneficial effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) regarding cell proliferation and differentiation.
AIM: To investigate the effect of Nd:YAG (1.064 nm) laser radiation in the proliferation and differentiation potential of MG-63 osteoblast-like cells. Additionally, the effects of the surface configurations were to be evaluated.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: MG-63 osteoblast cells were cultured on different surfaces: plastic tissue culture, smooth (polished) titanium-PT and rough titanium-SLA. The effects of both titanium surfaces and low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on cell adhesion were evaluated by the gene expression of molecules involved in cell proliferation and differentiation. In addition, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and MTT proliferation assays were used to examine cell morphology and proliferation, respectively.
RESULTS: Compared to smooth (PT) surfaces, SLA surfaces favoured MG-63 cell differentiation. Following the application of Nd:YAG laser irradiation, cells yielded statistically significantly improved differentiation on both smooth and SLA surfaces compared with non-irradiated surfaces.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this present study suggest that both surface morphology and Nd:YAG laser irradiation influence the proliferation and differentiation potential of MG-63 cells.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
