Role of Titanium in Osseointegration


Titanium has a significant role in the osseointegration process. It is the material of choice for dental implants due to its exceptional biocompatibility and durability. The metal’s unique properties are the key to the formation of a strong bond between the implant and the surrounding bone.

Titanium’s Features

One of titanium’s standout features is its ability to integrate seamlessly with living bone tissue. When a titanium dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone, the body recognizes it as a foreign object. It elicits a favorable response from the body. The bone cells begin to grow and adhere to the implant’s surface, which results in osseointegration. 

Additionally, titanium is highly resistant to corrosion and degradation. This is valuable for ensuring the long-term stability of dental implants. They need to withstand the harsh oral environment without deteriorating over time.

Titanium’s biocompatibility, durability, and resistance to corrosion make it an ideal choice for osseointegrated dental implants. It facilitates the integration of the implant with the surrounding bone, providing a strong and long-lasting foundation for replacement teeth.
