In brief: Titanium allergy

I suppose it is possible, there have been reports of people having problems with them, part of the problem is that allergy to titanium is not as prevalent as other allergies and people coming into contact with titanium is not as prevalent as well.
Many dental implant materials, as well as prosthetic implant materials are made of titanium because of the low incidence of allergic reaction.
