A 2016 survey by ALDI gave confirmation that Australia is indeed a nation of meat lovers who was already spending as much as $378 million per week on meat. The findings corroborate the observation that when it comes to teeth loss replacements, Australians prefer dental implants over traditional dentures.
Dentures Supported by Dental Implants Keep Backyard BBQs Popular in the Australia
Backyard barbeques are a staple in Australia and popular BBQ dishes like steaks and corn on the cob can be hard to chew for those with ordinary or conventional replacement dentures. Fortunately, advancements in modern dentistry came up with dental implants that have taken away all the inconveniences associated with traditional dentures. Chiefly because they are dentures that are deeply and firmly rooted in the jaw bone by way of titanium posts. As such, wearers of the metal-rooted implants can eat anything they want.
If you’re just starting out with a set of dental implants, opt for meat that are not cooked longer than medium so that it remains juicy and easier to chew. Take note that the longer the steak or any meat stays on the BBQ grill, they become tougher and harder to chew.
Corn on the cob are classic features in barbeque parties but even if you’re wearing dentures supported by metal posts,do not put them to a test. While you can chomp some off from the cob, some of the corn will stick in between your gums and implants. The best way to eat corn is to remove them from the cob so you won’t have to suffer from uncomfortable, irritating, or annoying eating experiences.
Even vegetables and fruits like celeries and apples, can be very hard to chew with implants and dentures. Still, celeries and apples offer oral care benefits, as they naturally remove leftover bacteria and plaque. Moreover, they also have the ability to increase saliva flow, which lessens the risk of gum diseases or decay that can negatively affect dental implants.
Why Dental Implants are Better than Traditional Dentures
One of the benefits of having metal implants for your dental replacements is that they improve eating experience.
Ordinary dentures can weaken your bite strength as they merely sit on top of your gums, while not having the ability to support the force that you apply on your bite. Even after fully adjusting your dentures as it hardens up the gums, your bite force remains weak and would worsen as more teeth are extracted. Similar to natural teeth, dental implants is connected to the jaw bone by way of metal posts that provide full-strength bites.
Other disadvantages of traditional dentures are its likelihood to get displaced while chewing, which involves a various range of motions.
Dental implants also cause less gum irritation compared to traditional dentures as they don’t stress the gums. Otherwise, this make chewing painful and irritating, which leaves your gums red and sore.
