Implantation History

About 50 years ago, an orthopedic doctor, Professor Brand Mark, while studying rabbit fracture, found that titanium is a bio-compatible material for human and animal bones and then with the help of his child, he also experienced it as a human dental implant in the operating room. Since then, the implant has been invented almost today, which after a lot of research and development is routinely used in offices and in many cases, it has eliminated dental treatments of the deadlock.

Implant Structure

The term implant consists of two parts: the root (the fixture) and the crown (abutment) on which the cover is attached. The root part, sometimes called the implant. This is the part of the titanium alloy that is inserted into the jawbone and anastomose to it. (Under the optical microscope, there is no gap between the implant and the bone).The crown part includes: 1. The abutment that screws onto the root (implant). 2. Laminate made by the lab and attached to the abutment (screwed onto the implant) or screwed.

Types of Implant Covering

Cementitious

Screwing

Contains more than 2% of the covering, that covering is connected with temporary adhesive to the implant.

Used in special cases such as lack of space for the savior.
