Eat the Foods You Want With Dental Implants
Missing teeth can have a detrimental effect on how we speak, how we eat, and on our appearance in general. A missing tooth can cause us to pronounce words differently, alter the shape of our cheeks and mouth and can affect our bite.
Due to the gaps left behind by a lost tooth, the remaining teeth can be more prone to malocclusion when we bite or chew hard food, and as a result, many people who have missing teeth may elect to avoid certain foods.
However, advancements in dental technology and the introduction of dental implants, those foods that were once to be avoided can now be added back to the menu with confidence.
Malocclusion, also known as tooth shift, can often occur when we exert bite pressure, or chew food. While dentures can lessen the amount of tooth shift by filling in the gaps left behind by missing teeth, there is a chance that they become damaged when eating certain foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables, or when biting and chewing steaks.
Dental implants, however, are an alternative solution for those seeking tooth replacements and implants impose no restrictions on what a person can or cannot eat.
Dental implant treatment involves an implant dentist placing a small titanium rod into the patient’s gum tissue. Over a period of time the rod begins to bond with the jaw and thus the dental implant provides great strength and stability to the surrounding teeth. The dentist then fixes a porcelain dental crown onto the rod, which mimics and replaces the missing tooth by minimising malocclusion and helping to restore the patient’s bite strength, and allowing chewing and biting to once again take place.
One of the great beauties of dental implants is the fact they are a permanent addition to your mouth; they can’t slip or fall out, and so there is no need to be fearful of what you eat. Also, dental implants require no special cleaning care, and can be successfully maintained by regular dental hygiene and dental check-ups.
