I find it really comforting that this kind of thing is available now. Particularly with dental implants.
I know my father had all kinds of problems with his teeth and jaw. Not only because he had probably not taken as much care of his teeth as he should have, but also because of an accident at the dentist that damaged his jaw.
He never did go and get it fixed properly, but I'm told that if he had it would probably have been done with some osseointegration dental implantation techniques.
It makes me sad that he didn't really have the option available to him, but still I'm glad that people do have that option now.
