External augmentation is often necessary to support bone formation in critical sized bone defects. There are many metals used for bone regeneration. Titanium (Ti) metals and its alloys are widely used for bone and dental implant devices. The major advantage of the titanium metals is that they show excellent corrosion resistance and good hard-tissue compatibility. Despite this Pure Titanium performs inert in nature biologically in clinical and medicine. To overcome this limitation, Titanium metal can be modified using both acid and alkali etching. Surface morphology is critical for improving Ti metals physiological characteristics. The goal of this research is to evaluate titanium etched performance using intense hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide. So, the metal has been modified, surface morphologies were periodically checked and the treatment methods were performed rapidly to discuss the biological properties of the modified metal. The effects on the Acid Etching Treatment and the metal's suitability for use in bone tissue engineering (BTE) technologies were explored. The metals are very porous and have the capacity to freeze, adsorb proteins, and biomineralize
