Modern-Day Dental Implants: Convenient, Comfortable, and Effective
In the past decades, merely the idea of having dental implants placed on their mouth was enough to make one shiver in fright. Back then, having implants involved the implantation of various types of devices in the patient’s jaws, particularly between their periosteum and their alveolar or basal bone. Whether these contraptions yielded a huge success rate or not remains to be a mystery, yet these inspired researchers to continually develop and further improve implants.

Even during the prehistoric times, man strived to look for ways to replace lost teeth, be it due to trauma or severe periodontal disease. During those times, replacement teeth were made of raw materials like shells, small stones, or carved wood. As civilizations emerged and technology rose, dentures became a more sophisticated invention.
