Replacing missing teeth is an important process that you don’t
want to put off. If you ask the average periodontist,
the consensus today is that dental implants
are the preferred option for patients who can receive them. In the
past, that meant partial tooth replacement procedures involving more than one
tooth but less than a full arch.
Today, implant supported dentures and micro-implants allow them to
be used as a full-range replacement option for as many or as few teeth as you
need. If you are looking for a replacement for a full arch of teeth, here’s
what you should know about using implants to support dentures.
Can Handle Your Favorite Foods
That’s right, unlike dentures, implants impose no dietary
restrictions of their own. If you have no other health restrictions imposing
limits on your diet, then you can eat anything you like after recovering from
the placement procedure.
Recovery usually goes like this:
•Liquids for one to two days
•Soft foods for the rest of the first
•Transitioning back to your regular
diet in the second week
Many patients get back to their old diets faster.
More Important Facts About Implants
Implants are about more than your food choices. They also look and
feel like natural teeth, so you have the same feedback in the jaw and the same
ease of speech your original teeth gave you. The last important fact about
implants is probably the best. That feedback in your jaw that makes the teeth
feel like natural teeth? It also prevents jawbone erosion.
