Eat Food Again With The All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Here at Pinnacle Oral Surgery Specialists in Rockwall, TX we want all of our patients to be happy with their oral health situation. We know how hard it is to feel happy about your oral health situation when you have missing teeth, which is why we offer dental implants and the All-on-4® Treatment Concept. Dental implants can be used to replace single teeth, several missing teeth, even a full mouth of missing teeth with permanent, reliable, and extremely useful dental prostheses. One of the biggest hassles that follows tooth loss is eating your favorite foods. With dental implants, you can eat whatever you want the same way you did with your natural teeth.
How Missing Teeth Affect Food Consumption
When you lose a tooth and do not replace it right away, you will be left with an empty spot where a tooth once was. The ridgeline of your gum will be fully exposed to all of the foods that you eat, meaning food particles can slip between the two teeth neighboring the lost tooth and poke the ridge line of the gums. Your gums, like any fleshy portion of your mouth, are tender and easily irritated. When you try to eat something crunchy, like chips or crackers, the sensation of constantly being poked and prodded by the sharp edges of your food is uncomfortable.
Even one Missing Tooth can Affect Eating
A little-known fact about teeth is that they are not stuck in a static position in the mouth, but rather they depend on their neighbors for support. So when you use your teeth to take a bite of something tough, like an apple, all the teeth brace against each other to help make taking a bite more comfortable. When you lose just one tooth, the support structure for taking that bite of the apple decreases significantly. This can mean quite a bit of added discomfort when eating, and it can also mean that your existing teeth are much more likely to be damaged while you eat. Teeth that are not supported by neighboring teeth can become loose and at risk of damage and tooth loss.
Dental Implants and All-on-4 can Restore Function
Having a dental implant placed is almost like having another natural tooth placed. Dental implants are surgically placed into the bone in your jaw, and as the jaw heals, it heals around the implant posts, integrating them into the strong bone structure. This allows you to chew your food with confidence and comfort. The All-on-4 implant-supported prostheses offer those who have lost all of their teeth a great way to enjoy all the foods that they have missed for so long.
