Abstract

Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark, the father of modern implant dentistry died unexpectedly on December 20, 2014, in his birthplace Gothenburg, Sweden at the age of 85 by a heart attack. He was a Swedish professor of anatomy who accidentally discovered an intimate bone-to-implant contact with titanium, the phenomenon that he called it “osseointegration”. Few scholars and even fewer individuals in the world haven’t heard his name due to his valuable innovation and noteworthy favor to humanity. This article is written in order to appreciate his invention and asking God for forgiveness at his first death anniversary.
