How Dental Implants Let You Eat Better

Hello, Plainville, CT!

Welcome to another edition of our ongoing Gentle Dental Care blog.

We are dentists so, obviously, we are acutely aware of how what we do impacts your general well being.

But we hope that you, too, can see how your oral health is the building block for a healthy life.

And there is nothing we want to see more than the good folks of Plainville out enjoying their health in the autumn sun, sharing radiant smiles with one another.

Sounds like the makings of a good commercial, right?

But, in all seriousness, our Gentle Dental Care team wants to be your partner for oral health and healthy living in Plainville, CT.

In a recent blog, we alluded to the ways in which a diet high in fiber can benefit your oral health, as well as your overall wellness.

Fiber is a necessary component to a balanced diet.

The benefits are huge.

But did you know that dietary fiber also helps protect your teeth from decay by producing saliva when you chew it?

Pretty cool, huh?

Of course, to chew it, you have to have a full set of strong set of teeth to begin with.

Missing teeth, and even tooth decay can diminish your ability to properly chew on high-fiber options like fruits and vegetables.

Let’s be honest, it won’t just be difficult to chew these things, it will most likely be a rather painful experience.

Oh, and gum disease will make it tough too.

So, what are you supposed to do about good food choices if your oral health isn’t exactly in great shape?

That’s what we wanted to tell you.

Things aren’t like they used to be.

And that’s a good thing in regards to your dental options.

These days, there are ways to treat gum disease and there are a number of good tooth replacement solutions, and one in particular that will give you close to your original biting power.

With that restored biting power you will have the ability to chew all the fiber-rich foods that you need.

What we are talking about is dental implants from Gentle Dental Care.

When it comes to effectively chewing your food following tooth loss, it all comes down to the strength and stability of your artificial replacement.

This makes sense, right?

A secure enough replacement tooth root gives you the biting power you need to chew on high-fiber foods, and other difficult choices.

It will also give you the dignity and assurance of eating what you want without living in constant fear that your replacement will let you down.

Titanium Makes All The Difference

At Gentle Dental Care, the thing that makes our dental implants so secure is the titanium post that anchors into your jaw bone.

Titanium has a special, natural ability to fuse with your bone structure over time.

This process is called osseointegration, which is mouthful to say, we realize.

But it is exactly what makes dental implants for our Plainville, CT patients so stable and secure.

Dentures used to be a popular replacement option for tooth loss in adults.

However, dentures only sit on top your gums, while implants are physically anchored to your jaw by the titanium post that mimics your natural root.

This means that dental implants function and feel like your natural teeth.
And once the crown is placed, implants will look just like your real teeth too!

Choose To Have The Freedom Of Choice

Having the ability to eat the kind of foods you need to stay healthy is a major benefit of dental implants from Gentle Dental Care.

Looking and feeling better about yourself will follow.
