Many people believe that once you lose a tooth the loss is permanent and there is no way back, but what if that is not necessarily the case? Losing a tooth is something no one wants to happen, but it can be an unavoidable aftereffect of some types of accidents, such as traffic accidents or sporting injuries to a person's jaw, these are the times when someone may start to believe that they have lost their tooth or teeth for good and there are few options available that would replace the lost. Many of those who lose a tooth, or several teeth may start to investigate the options that are available via dental devices such as bridges or dentures which can be used in cases of severe or complete tooth loss. However, these devices tend to come with their own challenges, such as moving when in the mouth and do not offer the patient a fixed in place solution that could be permanent.
