Are particules titanium related to the risk of peri-implantitis?
The authors were able to show a direct effect of Titanium products by changing the composition of the biofilm to a profile similar to that observed in peri-implantitis.
The results of this study showed that Ti products, especially Titanium ions, have the potential to change the microbiological composition of in situ biofilms formed on titanium surfaces. These findings suggest that the presence of Titanium products around dental implants may contribute to the development of peri-implantitis.
