Dental implants may seem to be a pretty recent dental technique, something too modern to be thoroughly tested by time. If you are considering implants, but hesitate because you think you should stick to something more traditional, relax. Studies have indicated that this technology dates back to the ancient Egyptians, Mayans, and Romans.

In 1931, an excavation of a Mayan burial site in Honduras found the bones from a woman with three pieces of seashell placed in the sockets of missing teeth. It is believed ancient Egyptians shaped seashells and hammered them into the jaw, similar to the Mayans. In 1998, Nature Magazine published the story about the discovery of a Gallo-Roman with an iron implant dating back more than 2000 years.

Modern implantology has its roots in the 1950s. In 1952 Per-Ingvar Brånemark, a Swedish orthopedic surgeon and research professor discovered that titanium will bond permanently with bone. He named the process of titanium integrating with bone "osseointegration". Brånemark is known as the father of modern implantology.

In 1959 Stefano Melchiade Tramonte, an Italian medical doctor started using implants on his patients. The first titanium dental implant was placed in 1965. The positive results of Tramonte's clinical studies were published in 1966. In 1969 a US patent was filed for titanium dental implants.

There are people now that have had implants for 40 years. With 50 years of careful research, refining the art and science of dental implants, they have a 96 percent success rate today. Over 1.7 million dental implants were placed in 2006 alone.

As you can see, dental implants have a very long history of study and refinement. They are the restoration for missing teeth that mostly looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth. So, if you are missing teeth, dental implants may be the ideal option for you. Schedule a consultation today with the Miami implant dentists of choice, Drs.
