Dental implants are touted by most dental professionals as the best tooth replacement option on the market. The biocompatible titanium steel posts that are inserted into the jaw provide incomparable stability and stability. Additionally, this advanced tooth loss solution not only looks completely lifelike but returns the full functionality of having a complete set of teeth, such as speaking clearly and eating with ease. But is there a diet that is best for dental implants? Read on to find out!

The Best Diet to Support Dental Implant Health

As stated above, dental implants are connected directly to the jawbone, and even begin to naturally integrate with them over time in a process called osseointegration. This means that implants depend on the strength of your jaw for their longevity and stability. In order for your restoration to last as long as possible, it is essential to get plenty of nutrients that support bone health. The two nutrients that are most important to this are calcium and vitamin D.

What Foods are Rich in These Nutrients?

Since calcium and Vitamin D are key in keeping your jawbone healthy and strong, it’s important to be aware of what food choices are plentiful in these nutrients. Fortunately, there are many delicious options that you can either enjoy individually or use in cooking delicious meals. Try to incorporate the following foods:

  • Fatty fish
  • Tofu
  • Egg yolk
  • Dairy
  • Leafy Vegetables
  • Mushrooms
  • Cereal
  • Fortified and plant-based milk
  • Fortified Orange Juice

How to Get the Most out of Your Dental Implant

While a nutrient-rich diet can help support your dental implants, they are durable enough to last quite a while without major changes to your food choices. One of the most essential things you can do is be consistent with a good oral health routine. By brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once daily, you will keep your implants free from bad bacteria or other harmful substances. With these essential habits, as well as being mindful of consuming healthy foods and beverages, your complete smile is sure to last for many years to come!
