Abstract

In the present study, four different types of the commercial dental implants used as support for total/partial dental prosthesis have been investigated. Pure Ti and Ti6Al4V alloy, provided by four different manufactures, were chosen because are the most frequently used in the dentistry market. The corrosion resistance was evaluated by using linear polarization technique, after recording the open circuit curves in Fusayama Meyer artificial saliva for 240 minutes. The corrosion tests in artificial saliva with pH 5.2 have shown that pure Ti exhibited a better behavior than the Ti alloy. This result can be explained by a higher stability of the passive thin layer of titanium oxide than the complex oxide layer formed on the Ti alloy surface.
