Bone Implant 

  • A bone implant or bone graft is a medical procedure through which a damaged or missing piece of bone is replaced with a graft. 
  • If the graft takes successfully, there is a good chance that the area will heal well.
  • Bone implants may also be used to repair chipped, broken, or severely damaged bones.
  • The implant manufactured must be made of a material that is non-corrosive and that does not produce any immunological reaction.
  • Due to high corrosion resistance, excellent strength and light weight, titanium & its alloys are widely used as implants.
