Titanium alloys have been widely used in medical or dental applications due to their superior biocompatibility, high strength and corrosion-resistant as well as low modulus relative to other implantable metals. In order to meet the stringent medical regulations and the advancement of bioengineering, material scientists have therefore designed a series of advanced titanium alloys. This chapter aims at reviewing the development process of new medical grade titanium alloys in terms of composition design, biocompatibility and shape memory effect etc.

Keywords: Biocompatibility, Shape memory effect, Titanium alloys.
