Missing Teeth May Mean You’re Missing on Nutrition Too!

Tooth loss is more than just not being able to flash that red-carpet perfect smile. Here at our Denville dental practice, we also understand that gaps in between teeth can also result to undesirable consequences, one of which is difficulties in your eating habits. 

How Tooth Loss Affects Your Nutritional Intake

First of all, your ability to chew will be affected resulting to food not thoroughly broken down into small pieces. According to this study on the effect of the tooth loss to diet and nutrition, “declining masticatory (chewing) function is, in a large part, responsible for the elderly consuming predominantly soft, easy to chew foods, which, in turn, can induce poor dietary practices and marginal nutritional intakes. It appears that with appreciable tooth loss there is a related decline in masticatory function; significant alterations also take place in certain perceptual and sensory measures.” By and large, tooth loss can result to insufficient supply of nutrients.

In addition, nutrient-dense foods such as meat and nuts are actually one of those food items that are difficult to chew hence the more undernourished one could become with tooth loss. 

Our modern and practical tooth replacement options can help you deal the nutritional difficulties following tooth loss. Get in touch with us today by calling us at 973.542.2742or by filling out this contact form. We look forward to your visit!
