Abstract. To study the effect of to low-intensity low frequency pulsed ultrasound (LILFPUS) on the surface wettability of titanium dental implants, an experimental medical-technical model was developed, consisting of an ultrasonic device, a fixed-mounted digital photo/video camera and a laboratory stand with a smooth vertical feed, in which an ultrasound nozzle with an experimental dental implant and fastener with a control implant were fixed. As a wetting agent, 0.9 % sterile physiological sodium chloride solution was used in a petri dish tinted with brilliant green. Using the components of the model, it was possible to immerse the control and experimental dental implants, fixed on a laboratory stand, equally and uniformly at the same depth. The results of the studies showed that under the influence of ultrasound, the wetting of the surface of all the test samples was 100 %, and the wetting of the control samples was not observed.
