Nutritious foods come in an endless variety of structures and textures, so we depend on our incredibly strong teeth to function properly so we can get the most out of our diet.
In fact, some of the healthiest foods that are high in fiber and protein, both good for building strong teeth, are crunchy. Biting into them promotes saliva production, which is another oral health benefit, because saliva washes away food particles between brushing and flossing, as well as creates a protective barrier between your teeth and gums and harmful acids and bacteria.
It’s Tough To Chew Without Teeth!
So it’s no secret why even one lost tooth, let alone many, will impede your ability to eat foods that are tough to chew. Limiting yourself to only soft, bland foods because you’re missing teeth or you wear slippery dentures will obviously impede your ability to eat lots of nutrient-packed foods you need for a healthy mouth and a healthy body.
Not to mention the fact that a highly restricted diet can be quite joyless!
But your friends at Lakewood Dental Centre have great news!
Dental implants can give you back the ability to eat all the foods you love, as well as the chance to maintain better total health thanks to a wider variety of vitamins and minerals you’re able to consume.
Get Back To Enjoyable Eating With Dental Implants!
Dental implants are more than just a way to replace missing teeth.
They actually replace a missing root!
Rather than sitting on top of your gums like traditional dentures, or filling an empty space in your mouth with a dental bridge, implants are placed directly into your jaw where the root used to be.
Then a replacement tooth, normally a dental crown, is attached to the implant with what’s called an abutment.
A titanium dental implant will naturally fuse with your jawbone over time, giving it stimulation that leads to healthy regrowth.
This is what makes all the difference with the tooth replacement solution you choose. Only dental implants offer a more complete replacement after you’ve lost a tooth and can mimic the function of a real tooth more closely than any other option.
With nearly the same bite power you once had, you can get back to eating all the foods you enjoy, allowing you to maintain a more balanced, nutrient-rich diet.
That means better health and a better quality of life!
