Peri-Implantitis induced by Titanium Corrosion

If you watched Dr. Georgios Kotsakis’ lecture during the Pikos Symposium 2020 event last October 15-17 and you feel the need to to re-watch it; check out this video where Dr. Kotsakis goes in the hot-seat with Dr. Omid Moghaddas.

Free Radical Production, Inflammation and Apoptosis in Patients Treated With Titanium Mandibular Fixations—An Observational Study

Despite high biocompatibility of titanium and its alloys, this metal causes various side effects in the human body. It is believed that titanium biomaterials may induce an innate/adaptive immune response. However, still little is known about changes caused by titanium mandible implants, particularly with regard to bone healing.

Side Effects of Dental Metal Implants: Impact on Human Health (Metal as a Risk Factor of Implantologic Treatment)

Dental implants are often made of titanium alloys. Implant therapy currently promises a good long-term result without impacting health; however, its success depends on many factors. In this article, the authors focus on the most common risk factors associated with metallic surgical implants.

Evaluation of the biological effect of Ti generated debris from metal implants: ions and nanoparticles

Metallic implants placed in humans exhibit wear and corrosion that result in the liberation of metal-containing by-products. In the case of titanium (Ti) containing implants, the metal containing debris may exist in a number of states, including metallic particles produced by mechanical wear and the products of metal corrosion in biological environments, such as the joints and surrounding fluids and tissues.

Titanium release in serum of patients with different bone fixation implants and its interaction with serum biomolecules at physiological levels

Titanium implants are routinely used for bone fractures as well as dental work. It has recently been shown that titanium-based implants both corrode and degrade, generating metallic debris. There is some concern over the increased concentrations of circulating metal-degradation products derived from these implants, and their potential harmful biological effects over a period of time, including hepatic injury and renal lesions.

Titanium Exposure and Human Health

This review is based on current titanium research demonstrating the many factors that can pose a negative impact on human health when exposed to the various forms of titanium, including its relationship and interactions with other metals.

The inflammatory response and bone resorption induced by ceramic particles were much smaller than those induced by polyethylene and Ti6Al4V. These biological features suggest the biocompatibility of ceramics as a joint surface material for artificial joints.

Intracellular uptake and toxicity of three different Titanium particles
