First Patient

In 1965, Mr. Gösta Larsson of Gothenburg, Sweden, was the first patient to be treated with implants by Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark. He received 4 mandibular implants for a complete arch fixed implant-supported metal-resin prosthesis. Mr. Larsson was happy to publicly display the success of this treatment and its impact on his life to the world. Mr. Larsson passed away in 2006 and at the time of his death, he still had his implants in place and fully functioning, for more than forty years.
