Dental implants History
Dental implants are an excellent way for replacing missing teeth. Like a natural teeth, dental implants have two major components. A component that looks like a screw and that is made from titanium and a component that is usually an artificial crown.

The key to the success of all implants is a process called osseointegration. This is how the bone in the jaw grows into and around dental implants. Titanium is a special material that the jawbone accepts as part of the body.

The ability of titanium to fuse with bone was discovered by accident. In 1952, a scientist named Per-Ingvar Brånemark was using titanium chambers screwed into bones as part of his research.

He was trying to learn about how bone healed after an injury. When he tried to remove the titanium chambers, he found they had become integrated with the bone.

Dr. Brånemark then did further research into how titanium implants might work. In 1965, the first root-form implants were placed in people.

Other types of implants also have been used for the last 30 to 40 years. Many implant systems are available from various dental manufacturers.
