Oral rehabilitation by means of osteointegrated implants is gaining more and more importance, in particular due to the improved characteristics of the fixture: among these, the superficial microscopical morphology plays a role of primary importance, since it can influence the evolution of the osteointegrative process. Therefore, this led to many surface treatments which can improve the quality and the speed of formation of the bony tissue. The aim of this paper is a review of the literature on this topic in order to find out which processes of characterization of the surface implant are now available and which results can be obtained.
