Summary

A bio-implant material, based on titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V, was solution treated in the α+β and β phase fields. While there was minor difference in the strength parameters, there was marked variation in their ductility. The β treated material showed higher corrosion resistance in Ringer solution than the α+β treated one. Also the influence of cooling rate, following solution treatment in the α+β and p phase fields, was studied on the above properties. Screw type dental implants with square head were machined from the α+β solution treated and air cooled rods of the alloy Ti-6Al-4V. These implants were inserted in jaws of six patients and were monitored for 12 months, at different intervals. The performance of these implants was found to be highly satisfactory.
