Description

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.

Key Features
