Dental implants are thought of as a modern dentistry marvel that can replace missing teeth but despite the fact that dental technology has made the ability to replace your natural teeth with implants that are extremely close to natural teeth, the idea of replacing the teeth with other materials is not new.
About Early Dental Implants
Early dental implants were used by the Mayan civilization over thirteen hundred years ago and in some archaeological digs they were found to be successful at actually fusing to the jaw. Today’s version of the dental implant wasn’t perfected until the 1950’s when titanium was incorporated and the father of implant dentistry, Dr. Leonard Linkow, began work that today’s dentists use to help people replace missing teeth with something that behaves very much like a natural tooth.
