Abstract

Titanium alloys have been widely used in medical or dental applications due to their superior biocompatibility, high strength and corrosion-resistant as well as low modulus relative to other implantable metals. In order to meet the stringent medical regulations and the advancement of bioengineering, material scientists have therefore designed a series of advanced titanium alloys. This chapter aims at reviewing the development process of new medical grade titanium alloys in terms of composition design, biocompatibility and shape memory effect etc.
