The Legends of Implant Dentistry with the History of Transplantology and Implantology

by Leonard I Linkow

This book is a complete encyclopedia of dental implantology. Starting with the history, where establishment of human implantology were defined and great pioneers who contributed to implant dentistry are highlighted and described very systematically with representative pictures. Reestablishment of history of dental implantation with chronological order in the development is listed. One complete chapter is dedicated to all the contributors, the legends and the pioneers in this field who have dedicated their entire life time in to implant dentistry with their biodata, what they were famous for, which procedures and how they followed, operating systems used in ancient time and how they evolved to current trends are depicted. It describes many techniques that are successful because they have been carefully designed to be compatible with the laws of nature. It explores the reasons why an implant succeeds or fails, from both operatory and physiologic viewpoints. Further, it tells the individual operator why the procedures should work; his own experiences based on a thorough understanding of the factors involved will finally prove that they do work. This book also gives an opportunity to explore what an ever-increasing number of operators are proving is the modern miracle in dentistry who previously paved the way through their unselfish work and their strong determination to continue despite the overwhelming skepticism from their colleagues trying to constantly disprove the principles of implantology.
