Fact: Biomaterials used in joint Replacement are designed to last long and withstand wear and tear arising from daily activities. Your bone around the joint replacement deteriorates over time due to a number of factors related to your body and its interaction with the prosthesis.
Many joint replacements gradually loosen from the bone over 15 to 20 years because of tiny particles that are generated from the artificial components rubbing over time as the joint moves. Ongoing research to better understand the effect of these particles have led to modifications to the materials which produce fewer particles compared to joint replacements done in the past.
