Titanium Advantages at a Glance
The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs has recently classified titanium between noble and high-noble alloys. Because of this new classification, dentists may now charge insurance companies between noble and high-noble rates using ADA Code D2794.
Titanium is the most bio-compatible metal available
Titanium does not release ions and does not trigger allergic reactions in the body. It has proven to be very effective in human medicine and dentistry.
Titanium is x-ray radiolucent
Titanium is X-Ray radiolucent allowing dentists to clearly see underneath the cemented crown without removing it in order to diagnose problems.
Titanium has low thermal conductivity
The patient can enjoy hot or cold food without experiencing dental pain. Titanium has a thermal conductivity of 15 times lower than gold, causing the patient to feel lower sensitivity to hot or cold.
