Titanium may be considered a relatively new engineering material. It was discovered much later than the other commonly used metals, with its commercial application starting in the late 1940s. Its usage as an implant material began in the 1960s, despite the fact that it exhibits superior corrosion resistance and tissue acceptance when compared with stainless steels and Cr-Co-based alloys. This chapter reviews the use of titanium and titanium alloys for use in biomedical applications and its processing. © 2012 Woodhead Publishing Limited. All rights reserved.
