Osseointegrated dental implants were introduced to the profession by a Swedish orthopedic surgeon. I had the honor of taking Dr. Branemark's first course in the western United States in 1983. Since then, I have restored thousands of dental implants, and the audited success rate of those I have placed and restored is 97%.
Here's an example of a patient treated with multiple implants and fixed bridgework seventeen years ago.
