Improved Chewing Function:
Dental Implants have a huge advantage over dentures. One of the biggest is the amount of force that can be generated. While healthy teeth are able to produce about 500 pounds of biting pressure per square inch, dentures are only able to produce about 20-30% of that force. A significant reduction in the things that can be eaten results in everyday choices about food based on, “Can I chew that?”
Patients who have dentures, as a group, consume foods that are higher in carbohydrates and processed (easier to chew) foods. This contributes to poorer diets and increases risk for diabetes, and other problems. Not to mention the diminished quality of life.
Dental implants Boise Idaho allow the patient to achieve almost the same level of chewing efficiency as the original teeth. Just one more reason to consider dental implants as the replacement of choice for missing teeth or to secure a denture. Then go out to eat with confidence that you can order ANYTHING on the menu your wallet can afford.
