History of Dental ImplantsIt is hard to believe how people were replacing lost teeth or teeth during ancient times. About 4000 years ago it is believed that the Chinese used bamboo pegs to replace a lost tooth. It is mesmerizing to know that about 3000 years ago an Egyptian king got a copper peg inserted into his jawbone although this was done after he was dead it was the first recorded history of having a metal post in the jawbone of humans. Many cultures had their way of having dental implants a false tooth aged 2300 years was found among real teeth in Celtic grave France. This was done post-death to enhance the smile of the dead.

The past of Dental Implants

In modern history, the teeth began to be grafted and the dentists of the time were transplanting from one human to the other. There was an introduction of implant tubes and artificial teeth were introduced. After years of research and development, dental implants have now reached maturity as a high-end treatment option for a wide range of dental diseases and conditions. The dental implant is the most successful repair for teeth that have become irreversibly decaying, diseased, and/or loose in the mouth.

Modern Implants

Modern implants are available in a range of forms and sizes to accommodate the many types of teeth they replace, as well as the numerous types of prosthetic (false) teeth they will replace in the future. The surfaces of the implants have been modified to optimize the osseointegration process. Instead of being smooth or machined, they are often made rough by sandblasting and acid etching, which significantly impacts the surface area for the bone to attach. This increases the amount of bone that can be attached by a significant margin. Our dentists will help you acquire modern implants and will make sure that you choose the one that suits you according to your needs.
