Dental Implants in Towson
The foundation of dental implants started in 1952 when an orthopedic surgeon fortuitously discovered that he could not remove a narrow titanium cylinder placed in bone after months of healing. He had discovered what is now termed osseointegration (Greek, Osteon, bone and Latin, integration, to make whole). This means that human bone grows and fuses with a titanium surface.
With this discovery, scientists started experimenting with these small titanium cylinders in the 1960s and 1970s for dental usage. They continually altered and re-designed the dental implant's physical properties to find ways to replace teeth optimally.
Today with the widespread usage and scientific advancements, dental implants have achieved a success rate in the 92-95% range. This means that dental implants are a predictable solution for replacing missing teeth and that can last a lifetime!
