At the beginning of the twentieth century, the first dental implantation was demonstrated in the scientific references by Green Field, and that was the beginning of the development of dental implants until sub-bone implantation appeared in 1947, the Italian Farmiga made teeth from titanium that were implanted in the jawbones, and Professor Prenmark also discovered that metal Pure titanium interacts with human tissues positively, helping to form bone around this mineral, and this is what was called later as “bone fusion.”

This is what was presented at the Harvard Conference in 1987 to make implantology within dentistry.
