Sažetak

Titanium is widely used due to its biocompatibility and good biomechanical properties. Often it is the material of choice for making dental, orthopaedic and heart implants because it has good binding ability to living tissue and bones. It is used as pure titanium or as a titanium alloys, where the addition of another element or more of them allows to obtain better properties than titanium itself. Despite its inertness, titanium is still susceptible to corrosion and the release of harmful metal ions into the body. Most studies show that titanium is a highly biocompatible material, however there are certain studies that show that titanium materials can become incompatible and cause harmful effects. Given the widespread use of titanium, questions arise about its possible harmfulness. It is therefore important to continue to conduct toxicological tests, to carefully evaluate and examine the potential harmfulness of titanium, and to check for potential health risks to humans and the ecosystem.
