When you commit to an excellent home care routine and visit your dentists at 321 Family Dental every six months for professional teeth cleanings and examinations, your dental implant can potentially last for a lifetime.
Food to Avoid With Dental Implants
That being said, you also have to take precautions similar to what you would take with your natural teeth, such as avoiding certain foods that could be harmful to your restoration, like:
- Sticky or chewy foods like taffy or steak could loosen or pull off your crown.
- Hard foods like crusty bread, carrots or apples could damage your crown when you bite into them directly.
- Chewing on ice could break or fracture your crown.
Normal wear and tear over the years or eating foods like the ones mentioned above could cause damage to your crown so that you would have to replace it. However, when you're careful about the foods you eat and keeping your implant tooth clean and plaque-free, you will experience better longevity from your restoration.
