Mealtimes can be difficult moments to go through if you are completely toothless, or even if you are missing a few teeth. The act of biting on food and chewing on them can be challenging as well as painful. In the absence of teeth, the gums will do the work of cutting the food; the soft gum tissue will suffer from exerting the force necessary to cut meat, vegetables, or bread during mealtimes. As a result, it is common for those with missing teeth to suffer from painful or bleeding gums.
How can you enjoy your meals if you have missing teeth? Can you still experience pleasure during mealtimes, even after suffering from multiple tooth loss? Fortunately, you can bring back the enjoyment of eating your favourite food items with the help of dental implants. The implants are inserted into your jawbone, where they will be left to integrate with the surrounding tissue before being attached to either dental crowns or a fixed dental bridge. The natural appearance and normal function of your smile is restored after the implant treatment.
Your teeth replacements are held firmly in place by the implants, and will not be in danger of moving uncomfortably inside your mouth. With the help of dental implants, you can once again look forward to enjoying mealtimes with your most well-loved dishes. Chewing or biting on food will feel effortlessly normal, and you will find the taste of your food even more enjoyable if you are not fighting through the discomfort of eating with missing teeth.
