Corrosion is one of the main processes that cause problems when using metal implants in the environment of the human body. Due to its properties, titanium and its alloys are currently the most widely used biocompatible materials. But the use of implants made of titanium-based alloys is not always successful. The purpose of our research was to establish the reasons for the rejection of a Swiss firm’s dental implant made of Grade 5 titanium alloy. Implanted in the patient’s jawbone, it worked as a support for an artificial tooth.
Due to the increase in diseases in the musculoskeletal system, regenerative medicine is now developing various bone substitutes. Not all scaffolds, due to their shortcomings, are applied for every application. Patients should be provided with basic product information and other warnings about health risks or measures to be taken. From the establishment of the purpose of the biomaterial to apply, several stages of the life cycle can pass. To ensure the biocompatibility of medical devices, there is a legislative framework and standards.
