I'm trying to decide between Ceramic or Titanium Tooth Implant.

Which is easier to remove? If in the future, I need to remove it.

Great question.   There have been way more titanium implants removed and it seems that they are easier to remove as the ceramic implants integrate with stronger attachment.  As well the ceramic is more brittle so removal will be harder.   Having said that there is no reported fractures of properly designed and placed ceramic implants.  There are more fractures of abutment screws.  You must do your research and discuss treatment with a dental surgeon that has experience with both materials.   Good luck.
