Could dental implants have helped to avoid false teeth disaster?
A man has issued a plea for residents to keep an eye out for his false teeth after losing them in Glastonbury, with this situation unlikely to have come about if dental implants had been fitted instead.
According to Glastonbury People, the owner of the missing teeth is hoping to be reunited with them in time for Christmas lunch.
If he had had dental implants he might not have had to worry about this situation, but as it is, he may be forced to eat his festive meal without his precious chompers.
"They were lost somewhere in Glastonbury and were in a steel tin measuring approximately 2.5 inches in diameter, inside a black bum-bag," added the online news provider.
US dentist Dr Yoli DiGiulio recently claimed dental implants are vastly better than dentures and suggested individuals could need just one of the former in a lifetime if it is fitted correctly.
