The historical background of dental implants can be dated back to centuries ago when several materials including copper, porcelain, titanium, cobalt-chromium and others were used for making tools to combat edentulism. Years later, titanium was identified as a suitable material for dental implantation. This was followed by several changes and development in dental implants. In the 1960s, the first ever screw-type dental implant, Ventplant, was accomplished, called self-tapping implant, however, it was not used thereafter. Bioceram, a dental implant that was made in Japan then became the first implant used domestically and in foreign countries. Numerous dental practitioners also joined efforts to develop implant dentistry across several Asian countries including Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Korea and Philippines. Such associations have led to expansion and advancement in the dental implant industry. Currently, the market players are developing implants through computer-aided technology. Furthermore, growing edentulous population, emergence of regional players and innovations in implants will pave the way for industry growth in the foreseeable future.
