Enjoy More Foods with Dental Implants

Do you miss steak? Or corn on the cob? Biting into a nice, sweet apple? Are missing teeth — or bad teeth — preventing you from eating your favorite foods?

Our dentists already know the answer — and it’s yes. Eating becomes challenging when your teeth are not prepared to chew food adequately. While making your appearance less than desirable, bad teeth and missing teeth can also undermine the strength of your bite. This will make it tougher to chew effectively and eventually alter your dietary habits — until you are trading in that wonderful steak for a bowl of scrambled eggs.

But don’t push that steak aside just yet. Dental implants are the best way for you to enjoy all of your favorite foods.

We know that dental implants are far more beneficial that other forms of dental reconstruction. Comprised of titanium that bonds with the natural bone in the jaw, dental implants are stronger and support the teeth and the bite. The implant is firmly rooted into the jawbone which keeps it stable and secure, much like a real tooth, so it doesn’t move under pressure. It enables the jaw and teeth to move and bite down properly.

If you have dentures, dental implants can give you back the pleasure of eating those foods you've been pushing aside. Since dental implants mimic the natural function of teeth, you don't have to worry about your dentures slipping or falling out — allowing you to bite and chew as though you had a full set of natural teeth. Dental implant crowns can also be shaped and shaded to blend with the rest of the teeth, so that you won't be able to distinguish them from your natural teeth.

Ask us about dental implants and begin enjoying all the foods you’ve been missing.
