Categories: Implant Dentistry, History

With candor and familiarity, this book tells the story of Per-Ingvar Brånemark’s discovery of osseointegration and the challenges he faced to find acceptance for this concept within the scientific community. The biologic and biomechanical principles involved in this approach to rehabilitation are summarized, and the various clinical applications for osseointegration—from oral and maxillofacial prostheses to limb and finger-joint replacements—are described. Accounts of some of Brånemark’s first implant patients depict how this technique can transform lives. Anyone interested in osseointegration will find this book a fascinating read.
