Replacing lost teeth was one of the first ways ancient dentists tried to help man. Attempts at replacing teeth have been discovered as far back as early dynasties of China, ancient Egypt, and American Indians. Examination of mummies and early skeletons has shown evidence of the implantation of teeth. These early attempts were unfortunately doomed by limited surgical skills and infections. Implantology is the modern science of tooth replacement. While research has been going on for well over 30 years, the greatest progress has been made in the last decade as implantology devices and techniques rapidly changed from the experimental to the standard of care. For many of our patients, implants mean that replacing lost or missing teeth with natural-looking, permanently-anchored replacements need not be a dream. Tooth replacement has become a reality. While they are not a solution to every problem, implants can provide special benefits to: * Those who cannot wear conventional dentures comfortably. * Patients with teeth in danger of being lost that can be strengthened and saved. * Individuals who have lost teeth and prefer permanent teeth to removable partial dentures. ​ Implants are not for appearance alone. By firmly anchoring new teeth, they can restore clear speech and the ability to chew and enjoy eating again. They grant its wearer the healthy self-confidence of an attractive appearance, as well as the ability to resume normal functions of the mouth and teeth.
