A variety of grades of α/β titanium alloys are used as biomaterials because of their biocompatibility and functionality. Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy is recently used in dental implants along with the common Ti-6Al-4V alloy. Formation of an oxide layer on the surface of the implants improves compatibility with the adjacent hard and soft tissues. Thermal oxidizing treatment is an easy and environment friendly technique that can be used to harden the surface of these titanium alloys, and hence improve the poor tribological properties of these materials. The aim of the present research is to evaluate the tribological behavior of cast and forged Ti-6Al-7Nb and Ti-6Al-4V implants after different thermal oxidation treatments.
