Titanium’s Biocompatibility Is Perfect For Medicine

Surgical and dental tools, as well as other medical equipment, are made from titanium alloys. The accompanying infographic explains why and how this metal is beneficial in medicine.

Since the mid-nineteenth century, titanium has been a popular dental material (however the first titanium dental implant was not utilized until 1965). Titanium has been used in surgery since the 1950s, and it is now often used in medicine, primarily but not entirely in cardiovascular and orthopedic therapy.

Titanium is one of the greatest materials for medical supplies, surgical equipment, and device parts because of its bacterial resistance, strength, and low weight. Because of its properties, the metal is perfect for operating equipment, medical supplies, and device parts including pacemakers and prosthetic joints.

New medical applications for titanium are constantly being studied and tested due to the metal’s medically advantageous qualities and availability for purchase on the market. As the US population ages, there will be a growing need for a variety of medical operations that require titanium now or in the future. As a result, these businesses will have to spend a lot of money on research and development. The material included has more information on the medicinal uses and benefits of titanium.
