A Comprehensive Guide to Dental Implants

Structure of dental implant

Dental Implants Structure


The modern-day dental implant is the innovation of Per-Ingvar Brånemark, who is known to be the Father of Dental Implantology. [6]

However, the actual evolution dates back to the existence of humankind. Let us further explore the evolution of a dental implant: [7]

Ancient Egyptians Used Ligature Wire Made of Gold to stabilize periodontally involved teeth.

Etruscans used soldered gold to replace missing teeth. Phoenicians used gold wires to stabilize teeth.

Phoenicians used ivory to replace missing teeth stabilized by a gold wire.

Mayan Population used seashells to make Implants for mandibular teeth.

First Porcelain Crown placed on a platinum Disc. But, this failed to fuse with bone (osseointegration).

Strock brothers experimented with screw fixtures made of Chromium & Cobalt alloy (Vitallium).

Formiggini, along with Zepponi, developed a post-type endosseous Implant.

Dr. P. Brånemark used the first Titanium Implant in Humans to replace missing teeth.


Possible cause or damage that may require replacement with dental implants:

  • A dental decay
  • A dental trauma
  • Gum disease
  • Conditions like broken teeth

If you don’t undergo treatment, you may experience the following problems:

  • Misalignment of your biting
  • Weak oral health
  • Unsatisfied appearance
  • Possibility of gum diseases 

Artificial replacement provides better oral health and, of course, improved aesthetics.


Dental Implant Procedure

Dental Implant Process


A dentist first considers some specifications like the health of your jaw bone.

Then, he drafts a personalized treatment plan for you. He may list one or more possible techniques. The popular implant techniques are:


Same-Day Implants

These are also called immediate load implants.

Implants, as well as crowns, are placed in a single visit.

Mini Dental Implants

Require less-invasive techniques.

These are placed mainly for lower dentures.


Four implants restore all teeth in one jaw.

Bone grafting is not needed.


Six or eight implants restore all teeth in one jaw.

Bone grafting may be needed.

Advantages of Dental Implants

1. Improved Confidence

  • Implants do not make you feel that the teeth are artificial.
  • They are highly stable and won’t fall off like removable dentures.

2. Improved Speech

  • The surgeon perfectly places dentures in place.
  • These won’t slip or fall off, allowing undisturbed speech.

3. Improved Oral Health

  • With the implants, there is no burden on any other natural tooth.
  • Remaining teeth stay in optimum health with improved oral hygiene.

4. Improved Durability

  • Implants are anchored inside the bone and do not decay.
  • Extended durability when compared to dentures and bridges.

5. Overall Cost Benefit

  • Other alternatives (dentures/bridges) seem comparatively cheaper.
  • However, dentures or bridges need replacing every 5 to 15 years. [8]
  • Dental Implants are a long-lasting solution. Hence, their overall cost is lesser.
