Discomfort when eating due to the lack of teeth?

by Wildsmile

One of the greatest pleasures we have is definitely eating, enjoying our favorite meals is a wonderful experience that makes us happy and smiling. Unfortunately if we don't take care of our teeth and lose them, that pleasure will become a nightmare. In this article we will tell you about the risks of eating without teeth and the solutions to recover them.


Consequences of eating without teeth

It may seem very normal if you have lost a tooth, to think that nothing is wrong and that you will be able to continue eating as if nothing had happened, but the reality is that this is not the reality, as losing a tooth and not having it replaced soon can be dangerous for our mouth and the rest of the body. Below, we share with you a list of the most common problems:


Gum and jaw problems

When chewing food without teeth, implants or prosthesis, it is very common for this to cause alterations in our gums, jawbones and jaw. When we lose a tooth, both the gum and the jaw are left without their proper function, which results in the loss of bone and in the case of the gums, causing dental displacement. This is also caused by the bas distribution of force when chewing, since, when one tooth is missing, the others will have much more work and effort to process the food properly.

Gastro-intestinal problems

Not chewing food correctly causes problems in digestion, because when large fragments of food pass through the stomach, it is unable to properly digest them, resulting in an incomplete digestion. Our body needs the food to be chewed completely until it creates a thick paste, only then the stomach can extract the nutrients from the food correctly. It is important to add that eating partially chewed food can cause flatulence and indigestion.

How can I solve the discomfort when eating?

Nowadays there are several options when we speak of the total or partial replacement of teeth, all of which are useful and functional. Do you remember scenes on TV or in films when an elderly person took off their teeth and put them in a glass of water? Surely yes, they are called dentures and were the most common procedure decades ago for tooth loss. One of the big inconveniences they had was the discomfort when eating, since they moved constantly and sometimes they could move out from the mouth, they were the headache for your grandparents at meal time.

Fortunately, nowadays there are treatments that allow you to eat without any problem and with the greatest comfort. Dental implants offer an unbeatable aesthetics and functionality very similar to teeth, which is why they have become the most recommended solution for tooth loss. As they are screws that are fixed to the bone they are very stable, therefore, eating will not be a pain, but on the contrary, a pleasure.
