The urge to replace missing teeth dates back to the origin of medicine. Along history, organic materials, metals, alloys, polymers, glasses, and carbon were used to substitute teeth, but only in the past thirty years was a truly scientific approach implemented introducing the concept of osseointegration. This review aims at recapitulating the materials of choice, the surface modifications, and the most updated research advancements in the field of oral osseointegrated implants. As the accepted… CONTINUE READING
