Titanium is used as a metal for biocompatible materials such as dental implants or restorations because of its excellent chemical stability. However, the corrosion of Ti in the prophylactic fluoride-containing environment can become problematic. To clarify the effects of fluoride concentration and pH on the corrosion behavior of Ti, we conducted anodic polarization and immersion tests in NaF solution of various concentrations and pH values. The concentrations of dissolved Ti in the test… 

Effects of pH and fluoride concentration on the corrosion of titanium.

The aim of this investigation was to confirm and summarize the corrosion behavior of titanium in saline solution at different pH and fluoride concentration, and to characterize the surface films and

Effect of Fluoride Concentration and pH on Corrosion Behavior of Ti–15Mo in Artificial Saliva

Corrosion behavior of Ti–15Mo alloy in artificial saliva containing variation in pH (7.2, 3.5) and varying concentrations of fluoride ions (2500, 5000 and 10,000 ppm) was evaluated using

Influence of fluoride concentration and pH on corrosion behavior of titanium in artificial saliva

Titanium (Ti) exhibits excellent corrosion resistance in most aqueous media due to the formation of a stable oxide film and is chosen for surgical and odontological implants for this resistance and

Effects of fluoride and dissolved oxygen concentrations on the corrosion behavior of pure titanium and titanium alloys.

TLDR
These alloys are expected to be useful as new Ti alloys with high corrosion resistance in dental use, and a decrease in the dissolved-oxygen concentration tended to reduce the corrosion resistance of Ti andTi alloys.

Corrosion behavior of pure titanium and titanium alloys in fluoride-containing solutions.

TLDR
The corrosion resistance of Ti-0.2Pd alloy was greater than those of pure Ti, Ti- 6Al-4V and Ti-6Al-7Nb alloys in the wide range of pH and fluoride concentrations.

Influence of fluoride concentration and pH on corrosion behavior of Ti‐6Al‐4V and Ti‐23Ta alloys in artificial saliva

Titanium alloys exhibit an excellent corrosion resistance in most aqueous media due to the formation of a stable oxide film and some of these alloys (particularly Ti‐6Al‐4V) were chosen for surgical

The effect of fluoride-containing oral rinses on the corrosion resistance of titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V)

TLDR
Commercially available oral rinses having a high fluoride concentration and a low pH may reduce the corrosion resistance of titanium alloys used in dental appliances such as orthodontic titanium miniscrews and brackets.

TLDR
The results clearly confirm that titanium is attacked by fluoride in an acidic environment and fluoride rinses or fluoride gels must have a neutral pH if there is a titanium containing device in the oral environment despite the less prophylactic effectiveness.
