Titanium is a non-toxic metal that has become a staple within the medical field. It is also incredibly strong, lightweight and has a high strength to weight ratio. It also resists corrosion from bodily fluids, making it the ideal material for dental and medical devices. The most well-known uses of titanium in medicine are orthopedic titanium rods, pins and plates that can be inserted into the body for hip and knee replacement surgery as well as artificial heart valves. It also has the ability to bond with living bone, which is a remarkable feature that can reduce the likelihood of rejection.

Both surgical grade titanium and stainless steel are safe to use in new or healed piercings. Surgical-grade titanium has been through a rigorous testing process to ensure that it is biocompatible. surgical grade titanium is not to be confused with stainless-steel or other metals such as nickel that are not safe for body jewelry. The best option is to look for titanium with a medical-grade certification (Ti6Al4V ELI) that has been tested and certified by an independent testing lab.

When looking for a place to get a medical-grade titanium piercing, make sure that they have experience in this area. You want to avoid an unlicensed piercing shop that may be using inferior materials that could lead to infection or other health complications. You should also avoid using any titanium piercings that have not been sterilized after they have been made. This can be done with a variety of methods such as steam, heat, chemicals and irradiation.
