Loss of teeth can prevent you from eating certain foods that actually have high nutritional value. This, in turn, can affect your overall health, because your body may not be getting the nutrients it needs to function at its best. Replacing missing teeth can be done by getting a dental bridge, dentures or dental implants. Many dentists encourage dental implants due to their aesthetic superiority, durability and the fact that implants help your bone remain healthy and intact.

The Function of a Natural Tooth

Dental implants are very beneficial in that they are firmly rooted within the jawbone, much the same as the natural tooth. Because of the osseointegration with the jawbone, the implant is stable and secure, making this the best choice for replacing missing teeth.

When one tooth is missing, an implant provides a natural-looking replacement without affecting the neighboring teeth. A dental bridge requires modifications for the adjacent teeth. A crown is put on both teeth with the artificial tooth attached and bridged between them. A partial denture is a removable device that, while adequate for replacing the missing tooth, has a number of disadvantages, unlike a dental implant.

Your Diet After the Implant Procedure

The site of the implant will need time to heal. Directly after the procedure, you will need to eat soft foods to help the healing process. Sticky and/or hard-to-chew foods should be avoided. Once the implant site is fully healed, you will be able to enjoy all your favorite foods again.

Choosing healthy foods is important. Not only will healthy choices during the healing process help you recover faster, eating healthy after you are fully recovered from the procedure will help you maintain your oral health and general well-being.

With dental implants, you will be able to bite and chew as well as you did when you had all your natural teeth. If you have implant supported dentures, you no longer need to worry about the discomfort of getting food debris caught underneath them, or the embarrassment of them becoming dislodged.

Along with maintaining a healthy diet, it is also important for you to remember to brush and floss to keep your teeth, gums and your dental implants healthy. Regular dental checkups will ensure you are doing all you can to maintain your best oral health.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
