Resumen. Se busca entender cuáles son las respuestas biológicas que se dan en diferentes etapas de la implantología, centrando la atención en la influencia de la tecnología en la formación del ancho biológico. Se analiza cómo fue evolucionando la ciencia en la búsqueda de mejores respuestas y cuáles serán los factores decisivos para que la tecnología influencie a la biología y poder aproximarse cada vez más a lo natural.
