Six titanium (Ti Grade 5) discs were machined and smoothed with silicon polishing discs. The surface roughness was evaluated in a control group and in groups with different plasma-jet exposure application times [15-30-60-90-120 seconds (s.)]. The average surface roughness (Ra) and contact angle (CA) measurements were recorded via an atomic force microscope (AFM) and tensiometer, respectively. Data were analyzed with one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and the Tukey HSD test (α=0.05). According to the results, the argon plasma-jet surface treatment significantly affected the roughness and wettability properties (P<0.05). With an increase in the application time, an apparent increment was observed for Ra and a remarkable reduction in CA was observed in all groups. It concluded that the argon plasma-jet technology could enhance the roughening and wetting performance of Grade 5 Titanium.
