The importance of the introduction of dental implants can only be understood when the historical context is clarified. In the past, the main treatment carried out by dentists consisted of filling or, in unfortunate cases, removal of painful teeth. Only since the introduction of dental implants did it become feasible to restore dental arches in edentulous patients with complaints about their freestanding prostheses. Initially much scepticism prevailed about dental implants. When titanium with a roughened surface is used, implant success rises above 95%, provided that the implants are placed into sufficient bone volume.
