Bioscience and Bioengineering of Titanium Materials


  • Yoshiki Oshida, Professor Emeritus, School of Dentistry, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, USA Research Professor, College of Engineering, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, USA Adjunct Professor, School of Dentistry, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA

This unique book about bioscience and the bioengineering of titanium materials is based on more than 1,000 published articles. It bridges the gap between the medical/dental fields and the engineering/technology areas, due to the author’s unique experience in both during the last 30 years. The book covers Materials Classifications, Chemical and Electrochemical Reactions, Oxidation, Biological Reactions, Implant-related Biological Reactions, Applications, Fabri-cation Technologies, Surface Modifications, and Future Perspectives.
