Modern dental implants are fantastic way to restore your smile. When given proper care, today’s dental implants are designed to last indefinitely. With dental implants, you enjoy will enjoy these advantages:
It took years of research by numerous scientists to develop modern dental implants. That’s why today’s dental implants are a practical, state-of-the-art practical solution for people looking to restore their smile.
Of course, our ancient ancestors did not have access to modern practices of effective dental hygiene. As you can imagine, their smiles were afflicted with astounding rates of cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues.
Our ancient forbears were never able to develop a feasible, long term solution for smile restoration. How could they, without access to modern scientific research and technology? But you’ve got to hand it to them for their ingenuity. They tried to fashion dental implants out of all sorts of available materials:
Various breakthroughs in chemistry, technology, and biology were required to make modern dental implants a reality. Several scientist and inventors contributed to the development of modern implants. But Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark of Sweden made a pivotal discovery in 1952.
In order to create workable dental implants, scientists had to find a material for the implant fixture that’s both strong and biocompatable. Your body can become fully integrated with a substance that’s biocompatible.
Dr. Branemark made scientific history when he discovered that titanium, a very durable metal, is biocompatible. The funny part is, Dr. Branemark found this out on accident. You see, the titanium implements he was using for experiments on rabbits began to bond with the rabbit’s’ bones.
It took several years for Dr. Branemark to convince the dental community that dental implants with titanium fixtures make outstanding dental implants. Today he is hailed as a pioneer of dentisty.
Thanks to the work of Dr. Branemark, the use of
Titanium implants has since spread well beyond dentistry and is now used in medical and veterinary applications.
