Dental implants can fail due to various factors, in which bad tissue integration is believed to have a significant role. Specific properties of the implant surface, such as its chemistry and roughness, are of paramount importance to address specific cell responses, such as the adsorption of proteins, as well as the adhesion and differentiation of cells, which are suitable for biomaterial and tissue engineering. In this study, an acrylate-containing coating was produced on titanium surfaces through the atmospheric pressure plasma treatment of a liquid precursor, 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate. A hydrophilic coating was obtained, showing retention of the monomer chemistry as assessed by FTIR analysis and XPS. Enhanced fibroblast adhesion and decreased Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli adhesion were recorded, showing that this is a suitable method to produce biocompatible coatings with a reduced bacterial adhesion.
