One of the biggest downsides of wearing dentures is that eating becomes incredibly difficult. You might not think of what eating is like when you’re just desperate to have a mouth full of teeth, but once you take your first bite with dentures in, you will feel disappointed.
If you have dentures and don’t get to enjoy your favorite foods because of a fear that your dentures will fall out or they just don’t feel secure, exploring dental implants is a smart idea. Opting for dental implants can completely transform your entire eating experience.
One of the ways that dental implants enhance your eating experience is by making eating more comfortable. Dentures don’t feel like natural teeth and use adhesives and suction to stay in place. When you wear them all day, it tends to feel uncomfortable after a while which might not encourage you to eat an exciting diet.
With dental implants, you don’t experience the discomfort of dentures. Instead, the dental implants will secure your dentures or other tooth replacement to the jaw bone where it stays firmly in place, no matter what you eat. The bite force no longer puts pressure on your gums and instead puts pressure on your jaw, like natural teeth. As a result, eating is significantly more comfortable! You also don’t have to worry about getting tiny pieces of food such as seeds or crumbs stuck between your gums and dentures.
