Four French anthropologists report what might be the first single-tooth,
intraosseous (osseointegrated?) dental implant done in the Common Era. A
1900 year old skull, excavated in what was Roman Gaul, contains an iron
implant in place of the right maxillary second premolar.
A brief report with a "clinical" photograph and radiographs can be found
in the 1 January 1998 issue of Nature on pages ix and 29.
