Dentures & Chewing
People who have dentures that decide to have dental implants placed generally can expect to be able to chew their food 90 — 97% better than they did without their dentures. When you’re wearing dentures you lose about 80% of the force that you can generally chew your food with, with your natural teeth. When you have implants placed they’re the most natural thing that you can do to go back in time and restore the function that you used to have.
The benefits of that obviously when you can chew better you have better digestion, you eat better quality food and therefore your nutrition goes up and your health generally is a lot better.
As a second-generation dentist,Dr. Matiasevich was raised in Santa Cruz. Dr. Matiasevich completed his undergraduate work in economics at the University of California Irvine and then attended the University of Southern California for his dental degree.
