Dental Implants If you're a denture wearer, you will be all too familiar with the suffering and discomfort associated with painful dentures that do not stay in place when eating and talking. This can cause mental and physical suffering and may lead to loss of self-confidence. Even if they are constructed to the highest possible specifications, there are many problems associated with dentures and conventional restorations. Many people soon discover that dentures are a poor substitute for their natural teeth and simple tasks such as eating or even talking can be a source of anxiety, pain and discomfort for the rest of their lives. Yet, thanks to an accidental discovery, innovation, scientific study and recent developments in biomaterials, dental and medical sciences, the suffering endured by people who wear dentures is no longer necessary. In 1952, Professor Per-Ingvar Branemark, a Swedish surgeon, whilst conducting research into the healing patterns of bone tissue, the two literally grow together to form a permanent biological adhesion. He named this phenomenon "osseointegration". Today, modern dental implants, developed from the principles of osseointegration and routinely used in hundreds of clinics and hospitals worldwide, and sought after by thousands of patients because they have been proven to provide comfortable, permanent and attractive tooth replacements as an alternative to removable dentures and conventional bridges.
