Titanium Uses in Dentistry


Titanium is a metal alloy that has gained popularity in recent years in both the medical and dental fields. It has unique properties that make it preferable to other medical metals and alloys. In dentistry, steel and gold have been the traditional “go-tos” for procedures such as crowns, implants and braces. Both have been proven to be strong and durable. Over the years’ however, more dentists have replaced these metals with titanium. Titanium is also proven to be strong and durable. It is also cost-effective and light-weight. Its acceptance by the body makes it an ideal metal for surgical dental procedures. Titanium has properties that make it ideal for dental procedures and causes less discomfort for patients.

Below are the greatest benefits of using titanium:

It has no animate tissues, making it accepted by the body

It is compatible with your body’s other tissues (biocompatible)

Grade 5 titanium is shown to be stronger and fracture resistant

Softer than other metals, making it easier to mold and fit the patients’ mouths better

Price is reasonable and stays stable

Low thermal conductivity (meaning it won’t exacerbate the extreme hot or cold temperatures inside a patient’s mouth)

Corrodes less in the wetness and pH found in the mouth, which ranges from a pH of 5.6-7.9
