Replace Your Teeth With Dental Implants
The smells coming from the grill are great. You just hope you will be able to eat whatever is being prepared.
Your family’s annual summer reunion is always a fun time. There are many stories to tell, and the food is always amazing. At least, you remember it was amazing. After losing your teeth and getting dentures, eating isn’t as fun as it used to be.
You want to be able to chew grilled chicken or steak. You want to chow down on your aunt’s famous desserts. You want to savor biting into corn on the cob again.
You can do all those things with the right teeth replacements. That starts with getting dental implants from Black Diamond Dentistry in Black Diamond, WA.

Get Back More Than Your Smile
What do you really want from replacement teeth?
You certainly want to restore the appearance of your natural smile. The materials used to make teeth replacements (dentures, bridges, and crowns) are better than they have ever been. This means you can feel more confident about flashing your winning smile in person and in pictures.
But is that all your teeth are? You may not think about it, but if you are missing teeth, then you have likely already realized your teeth do more than just give you a complete smile.
Your teeth affect how you speak. When you are missing teeth, you may have trouble pronouncing some words. Loose-fitting dentures can move around, too, which also can make speaking tricky at times.
The most important thing your teeth do for you is helping you bite and chew. This is the start of the digestive process. The easier it is for you to eat a variety of foods and start breaking them down, the more likely you are to get the nutritional benefits from those foods.
Consider this part of our holistic approach to dental care, but we want you to be able to eat the foods you want to eat to be as healthy as you can be.
Feel As Good As Ever
Modern implants, sometimes called root-form implants, are made to replace the roots of lost teeth. Like natural roots, they provide some specific and important benefits. These implants also are why your replacement teeth are able to function more like the real thing.
Implants are titanium screws that are placed directly into your jawbone (where your roots once resided). This allows them to act as an anchor, securing your restorations and holding them stable in your mouth. As a result, you can bite and chew practically as well as anyone with a full set of healthy teeth.
Eat What You Want
Don’t waste any time wondering if you will be able to eat anything the next time your family gets together. Instead, think about all the delicious food you can enjoy when you have dental implants to support your replacement teeth.
