One of the biggest downsides of losing teeth is the need to cut back on the consumption of many foods. Corn, apples, chewy treats and more suddenly become inedible, and many of the joys that these foods once brought are lost. People with dentures may have spent years avoiding hundreds of foods that they once enjoyed without thinking twice. While the enjoyment of these foods might seem lost forever, dental implants can restore the ability to consume many of these difficult-to-chew treats.
With modern dental implants, your teeth will once again feel strong and natural, allowing you to eat many of these foods; foods you might have thought you would never bite into again. Thick, chewy breads and pastries will be back on the menu. Corn on the cob and whole apples can be eaten with confidence and joy. Because dental implants are anchored directly into your jawbone using strong, modern titanium, the implants will work and feel just like natural teeth.
If you miss the freedom of fully functional teeth, dental implants might be a good fit for you. To find out more about how dental implants can help restore natural eating and chewing habits and feel, contact dental implant expert Dr. Martin today.
