Osseointegration

dental osseointegration

We adhere strictly to the principles of Osseointegration; this is a term coined by Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark after his revolutionary discovery in the 1950s that the bone can integrate titanium elements.

Professor Brånemark named his discovery Osseointegration, from the Latin word os -meaning bone - and word integrate, which means unify, and can also be interpreted as “interactive coexistence”.

A screw-shaped titanium implant (“fixture”) is carefully placed into the bone and - quite impressively - the genetic code that usually causes the bone to reject foreign material is not activated. In contrast, nature allows bone cells to bind to the surface of titanium and the result is a stable and permanent basis for prosthetic restoration.
