Teeth are the only part of the human body that is incapable of self-healing. Their irreversible loss is fraught with a change in facial features, a violation of the function of chewing, and then an adverse effect on the human digestive system. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers the right solution to the problem. This solution is the implantation of teeth.
Implantation of teeth is the procedure for implanting dental implants in the place of lost teeth. This became possible due to the usual randomness in the scientific everyday life of the Swiss professor Branemark. Conducting another experiment, the scientist implanted a titanium capsule in the rabbit. When he wanted to take it out, he could not do it anymore. Thus, it was found that titanium is able to fuse with the bone. Professor Branemark decided to use this principle to help toothless people.
The first owner of dental implantation
The first happy owner of titanium implants was an ordinary carpenter who had problems with his teeth since childhood and lost all of them in his adult age. He could not eat, speak, and smile normally. This prompted him to risk a new method. In 1965, he became the first person in the world to have dental implants installed. He lived his whole life with his artificial teeth despite the imperfect implantation technology. This proved the effectiveness and reliability of this method.
Only 20 years after the installation of the world’s first implant, Professor Branemark crosses the ocean and tells everyone about the results of his activities. Having made an unprecedented furor, the implantation technology enters the US market and begins to develop rapidly. Today we can observe how the accidental discovery gave birth to a whole industry of implant production and allowed people who lost their teeth to lead a normal life.
