Dental implant history

Archaeologists have proven that ancient Egyptians and South Americans used clamshell, ivory or small grinders ... to restore the missing teeth. In the medical history, in the 18th century, there were a few cases of implanting real teeth from donors. Quite simple, but this is the foundation of the modern dental implant.

By the beginning of the 19th century, thanks to the exploration and research of the doctors who developed dental implant technique using gold, platinum,... for dental implants, but the success rate was quite low.

Until the father of dental implant technology found the new material. In 1952,Dr. Per Ingvar Branemark( the research leader at Lund University, Sweden) accidentally discovered the Titanium material by placing it in the rabbit's thigh bone to temporarily fix the fracture. After a few months of observation, when he knew that the bones had healed, he intended to take the Titanium out, but could not to get it, so he decided to leave it in the rabbit's body. He continued to monitor and found that there was no reaction between the rabbit body and the fixed Titanium pin.

As the result, he continued to research and expand this technique. He researched and made a scientific report on the theme "materials in the orthopedic surgery". He also noted that there was no negative biochemical reaction that affected the living organism and he called it was the "compatibility- bone integration" phenomenon.

Per Ingvar Branemark is the father of implants

By using Titanium to pave the way for the modern implant method, in 1965 he performed the first dental implant case using the Titanium implants in Sweden and achieved massive success. 40 years later, this teeth still existed and performed the eating function as well as normal people.

In Vietnam, the first case of the dental implant was adopted in 1994 for a male patient. Until now, this implant tooth still works very well even though the surrounding teeth have fallen off. And so far, according to the survey of many different dental implant cases, almost all the implant teeth work very well and always make the customer happy.
