That question can be answered in one word: osseointegration. Unless you’re a medical professional, though, that one-word answer leads to another question: what exactly is osseointegration?

Osseointegration describes the phenomenon discovered by the Swedish orthopedic surgeon Per-Ingvar Brånemark in the mid-20th. Brånemark was researching how bones heal and discovered, through his research, that titanium fuses naturally with bone tissue when given enough time. Further research and experimentation confirmed what he had discovered, and, in 1978, the technique was introduced as a commercial solution for dental patients needing to replace one or more missing teeth. The rest, as the saying goes, is history.

But if you still have questions about how dental implants work, don’t hesitate to call our Palm Beach Gardens office. Dr. Ajmo would be happy to meet with you and answer all your questions about dental implants.
