The holiday season is wonderful for a lot of reasons. We love spending time with family and friends. We love giving (and receiving) gifts.
And we love the food — boy, oh boy, do we love the food.
Whether we’re enjoying some delicious ham or turkey, stuffing, or a special dessert, it’s great knowing that you can eat all of it … unless you can’t. If you are missing teeth or living with dentures, you are quite aware of how your diet is limited by what you can bite and chew comfortably.
You can eat the foods you love again during the holidays and throughout the year by getting dental implants . In Boynton Beach, FL, you can learn more about them at the office of Hugh B. Rosenblatt, DMD.

Losing teeth is frustrating. It affects your smile and how you speak. And of course, it makes it more difficult to eat many things.
When you are missing teeth, it can seem impossible to bite and chew many foods that were once simple to eat. Sure you can still enjoy mashed potatoes, but chewing turkey can begin to feel like a chore. That takes away some of the fun of dining.
Getting dentures can seem like a stop up, at least initially. New dentures tend to fit well, don’t need as much adhesive, and do let you eat more than you could without them.
Yet, traditional dentures can only do so much. Research shows that dentures can restore about 20 percent of your biting power. That’s better than nothing, but maybe not enough confidence to bite into a crunchy cookie or a piece of peanut brittle.
Dentures by themselves also don’t prevent the bone loss that occurs as a result of tooth loss. That is why dentures become looser with time and require more and more adhesive just to stay somewhat in place.
To restore your smile as well as your biting power, you need a solid foundation. You can create that foundation with a set of dental implants at our Boynton Beach office.
Implants are replacements for the roots of your teeth. When placed in your jaw, they encourage new bone growth (thus preventing bone loss). This also creates a direct connection from your jawbone to your dentures. That allows you to put more force behind every bite you take and every chew you make.
In other words, you can eat the foods that you want to eat at your next family gathering or your office party.
With implant-supported dentures, you won’t worry about your replacement teeth coming out. You’ll feel confident ordering anything you want to eat at your favorite restaurant, too.
To put it another way, you’ll feel like yourself. To learn more, set up a consultation with Dr. Rosenblatt soon. Contact us online or call 561-877-3802 today.
