Biting into a fresh apple is one of life’s simplest pleasures — maybe the best, right underneath crunching on corn on the cob at a backyard summer barbecue. Tooth loss CAN take away from your ability to eat a balanced, nutritious diet with these and other items, but it doesn’t have to. To help, there are dental implants in Suffern.
Dental implants are a comprehensive tooth replacement option that can replace one, two, or an entire arch of missing teeth. They work by giving you back your missing tooth’s root structure as well as the visible crown, or the part that helps you bite and chew.
Nothing offers anything as stable or long lasting as dental implants. Keep reading to find out how they work, and how they can help you stay healthy eating all of your favorite foods… even after tooth loss!
How Missing Teeth Affect Your Diet
Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your overall health, not the least of which is the negative effect those gaps in the smile can have on your diet. Without a complete set of stable teeth, it may be difficult to eat some of the most nutritious foods, like fresh fruits and vegetables or lean protein sources. People who have a loose or ill-fitting denture or those who have never had their missing teeth replaced may only feel comfortable eating a soft, often bland diet. Their overall health is likely to suffer as a result.
Dental Implants: A Whole-Tooth Solution
Food is arguably one of the best things about life — and tooth loss doesn’t have to take away from your ability to enjoy a balanced diet with lots of variety. We love when our patients tell us that their favorite thing about dental implants is that they help them eat all their favorite foods once again!
Dental implants offer a number of other benefits, too, including:
- Easy to brush and floss dental implants after meals

- Bite directly into your favorite crunchy foods without having to cut them first
- Can last for a lifetime with proper maintenance
- Enjoy better nutrition and a healthier body with dental implants
