Hauppauge Periodontist explains how a strong bite is essential to everyday life.
You may wonder, how does one know if they have a healthy set of teeth or not, and the best way to measure this at home is if you are able to bite into food that requires a considerable amount of chewing forces. For example, an apple requires a significant amount of chewing force to bite and chew the apple.
When natural teeth are not present and people have a removable denture, their biting force goes down about 80%. This problem is present even with denture adhesives, which most people do not like.
Dental implants are a great alternative to conventional removable dentures. Dental implants are used to replace an entire arch of teeth by supporting a non-removable, permanent bridge. When dental implants are used in this way, the biting force is dramatically increased—almost to the level healthy natural teeth.
Sometimes temporary solutions can help you aesthetically, but in the long term functionality of your teeth, you want a permanent solution.
To enjoy everyday life activities like biting into an apple, a permanent solution can significantly help you.
Don’t let your oral health hold you back, give us a call today to see how we can help you.
