What is the history of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are one of, if not the greatest innovation in dental therapy. The
concept of dental implant treatment has been around for hundreds of years. However,
modern dental implant therapy was developed in the late 1950’s by a Swedish Orthopedic
surgeon by the name of Per-Ingvar Brånemark. His work with bone marrow circulation
lead to the development of the titanium root replacement cylinders that we use today.
Dental research and literature suggests modern dental implant therapy has a success
rate of greater than 94%.
