Are removable teeth causing you to miss eating all of your favorite foods? Are you tired of your teeth moving while you are trying to eat? Are you tired of having to put glue on your dentures every so often to make sure that your teeth stay in place?

Dental implants might be just the right option for you so that you can eat and do daily functions with ease. A dentist in Lafayette, CA is willing to assist you with seeing if dental implants are the best option for you.


How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants work much like your real teeth. You can do just about anything with your dental implants that you are with your real teeth. You do not have to worry about your teeth moving or sliding while you are eating or just doing daily functions.

Since your dental implants work like your real teeth, you can care for them just like your real teeth. Right after implant surgery you will be on a strict diet until your mouth heals properly.

Listed below are some of the foods that you can eat right after implant surgery:

  • Water
  • Any type of broth
  • Soup pureed
  • Mashed bananas
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Pudding
  • Applesauce
  • Oatmeal
  • Vegetable or fruit juice
  • Tofu
  • Flaky Fish
