Maybe you’re tired of having a gap or two in your smile
after having to get teeth pulled due to decay or injury. Or perhaps you’ve had
dentures for a while now, but have gotten sick of them always slipping and
sliding around when you’re just trying to live your life. Whatever the case may
be, dental implants can help. These biocompatible titanium posts perfectly
mimic the roots of your lost teeth. They are then topped with a prosthetic
tooth or teeth so lifelike that no one but your implant dentist will be able to
tell they’re not your natural pearly whites! In today’s post, we go into a
little more detail on how exactly implants can help
you, no matter how big the gap in your grin.

It should come as no surprise that the foods you eat can
either positively or negatively impact your oral and overall health. Enjoy
eating lots of candy and potato chips? Get ready for your waistband to expand
and your teeth to become decayed. Prefer to snack on fruits and vegetables?
Watch as your body reaps the reward of healthy vitamins and minerals and your
gums maintain their beautiful pink color. It can be easy to deviate from what
we know is good for us and instead, choose options that simply satisfy our
cravings. Unfortunately, this can backfire when it comes to gum disease, which
is why your dentist
is happy to provide food recommendations that will keep both your mouth and
body on track.
