A distinguished personality in the universe of dental knowledge due to dozens of books published and international awards received, Per-Ingvar Brånemark, a Swedish orthopedic surgeon and professor, left a significant legacy of research in his professional field. Known as the father of modern dental implant, the revolutionary physician was at the age of 85 and did not resist the complications of a heart attack suffered right before Christmas, in Gothenburg, Sweden, his hometown.
