Dental Implants are Reliable and Durable
Dental implants are the best tooth-replacement option on the market thanks to their durability and strength. A dental implant replaces your missing tooth from the root that goes deep into the jaw bone up through the beautiful porcelain crown that rests on top.
With other tooth replacement options that aren’t as durable as dental implants, you might have to be a little more careful about what you eat and which foods to avoid. If you have dental implants in Roseville, MN, however, you can enjoy all your favorite meals each day.
You will, of course, need to give your dental implant surgical sites time to heal sufficiently before indulging in hard, crunchy foods. For the first few weeks after your dental implant surgery, we recommend sticking to a soft and liquid diet full of foods like soup, ice cream, pudding, and smoothies.
After your mouth has healed and you no longer feel pain or tenderness, your Sartell dentist will advise you that it’s appropriate to return to a regular diet. At this time, you are free to eat any of the regular foods in your diet.
How to Care for Your Dental Implants
If you’re going to indulge in something particularly hard or crunchy, it’s best to evenly distribute your chewing forces and not rely only on your dental implant to do the work. Use your stronger back molars to break up any pieces of food that are tough or strong before using your dental implant.
