Industrial Involvement. A significant basic research effort is now under way, primarily at universities, to understand how biomaterials function and how to optimize them. At the same time, companies are producing implants for use in humans and, appropriate to the mission of a company, earning profits on the sale of medical devices. Thus, although we are now only learning about the fundamentals of biointeraction, we manufacture millions of devices for implantation in humans. How is this dichotomy explained?

After 10–15 years, many of these implants fail by loosening, which usually necessitates another operation (a revision procedure). Metal-on-metal implants also experience problems of corrosion and adverse responses to released metal ions. 6. INTRODUCTION xxxi FIGURE 6 Schematic images of early dental root form implants and a photograph of several designs used in clinical practice. , 1986). These devices form an implanted artificial tooth anchor upon which a crown is affixed, and are implanted in 2,000,000 people each year in the US alone, according to the ­American Dental Association.

These early biomaterials included silicones, polyurethanes, Teflon®, nylon, methacrylates, titanium, and stainless steel. A historical context helps us appreciate the contribution made primarily by medical and dental practitioners. Just after World War II, there was little precedent for surgeons to collaborate with scientists and engineers. Medical and dental practitioners of this era felt it was appropriate to invent (improvise) where the life or functionality of their patient was at stake. 7).
