What is the longest lasting way to replace a missing tooth?
DENTAL IMPLANTS. When the only option for dealing with a lost tooth is the Tooth Fairy, the closest thing to a do-over for a tooth is a dental implant. A titanium implant is surgically implanted into the area where the tooth is missing and crown (ceramic tooth) is attached to it. Implants not only look natural, but feel and act like normal teeth. And because they don’t directly rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants don’t compromise the health of your remaining natural teeth. FYI, Hansen Dentistry does not recommend any age limits for the Tooth Fairy.
