Özet

Although titanium is a highly inert material, it may corrode when in contact with the oral cavity This study aimed to examine the titanium presence and levels in gingiva samples that had been in contact with a dental implant cover screw for 3 months. Twenty two-staged dental implants were included in the study as a test group. Gingiva samples were taken over the implant sites. Ten control samples were obtained from oral mucosa during gingivoplasty. All samples were analyzed by Laser Ablation-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry.
