Early dental implant materials generally used precious metal alloys, such as silver alloys, 316L stainless steel, and cast cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloys. However, there are some problems. For example, it does not have good corrosion resistance, and it is more and more difficult to meet people's needs for wearing and chewing. In addition to the difference in materials, the prices are also different, which makes it difficult for ordinary people to choose dental implant materials.
Titanium and its alloys have outstanding advantages such as good corrosion resistance, outstanding biocompatibility, suitable mechanical properties and physical and chemical properties. They are developing rapidly in the medical field and are gradually replacing the original dental implant materials and become the current dental implants. The material of choice.
1. Good affinity
Titanium has minimal biochemical reactions with tissues, body fluids, blood, mechanics and electricity, and does not cause toxic and inflammatory reactions. It helps to heal and fix after implantation. Compared with traditional gum materials, it does not change when chewing. The food tastes good, and the texture and taste are good.
2. Strong aesthetics
Titanium has sufficient strength and toughness, good wear resistance, hardness similar to human natural teeth, crowns and bridges made of titanium with high surface finish are beautiful and generous, and can confidently expose a large white tooth.
3. Good corrosion resistance
The made crowns and pontics are immersed in human saliva, and saliva contains protein, inorganic acid, organic acid and alkali. In this environment, traditional gum materials are easily corroded, which will reduce the mechanical properties of dental implant materials. , The corrosives produced will cause irritation and toxicity to the human body.
The corrosion resistance of titanium allows the gum material to remain highly inert in the oral cavity, resist dissolution and oral saliva erosion, not only can accompany you for a long time, but also avoid the pain of repeatedly exchanging gum material and enjoy a delicious life.
