For thousands of years, if a person lost a tooth, they were sentenced to go through life never having that tooth. Sometimes, long before their old age was reached, only one or two teeth remained.

Once in place, they can be dealt with like natural teeth, not needing to be removed to be cleaned and not coming released at inconvenient times.
