For teeth that have fallen out, dentures are usually recommended. But options like dental implants give permanent results and don’t necessitate the use of glues and cleaners.
Dental implants are an alternative to dentures, which can be uncomfortable and may have environmental drawbacks. “Dental implants are as maintenance-free as you can get when it comes to cosmetic dentistry,” says Barrington, IL, cosmetic dentist Thomas Jackson, DDS. “They’re immune to cavities, staining and decay, and at times can be performed in a single visit, making them an all-in-one, permanent solution to tooth loss.” Because they don’t require repeat surgeries and yield no downtime, they reduce the steps involved in other procedures, like taking impressions, making temporary restorations and using paper goods (bibs, cups, and doctor gowns) associated with repeat visits. “The concept is simple: The less maintenance over time means that fewer materials and chemicals are used,” says Dr. Thomas Jackson.
