What Food Will I Have Trouble Eating?Remember that all of your teeth have a specific purpose. Some are for chewing, and some are for tearing. If these teeth are missing, you may have problems with certain foods. If one of the missing teeth causes a space between two other teeth, it will cause you a problem eating other foods. Here is what you may be missing out on.
First off, there is crunchy food. It is difficult to chew crunchy food if you don't have teeth designed for chewing. Your teeth are set up to meet one another to do their job well. If one is missing, the tooth it is supposed to meet is basically out of commission as well. This makes it difficult to chew some cuts of meat and to eat just about anything that requires crushing, grinding or a lot of chewing.
If you have a tooth missing between other teeth, you will lose out on other foods. These foods are a problem because they slide between other teeth. Foods like spaghetti will slide through, so will rice, nuts, and other small foods. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more, please call us today at (310) 894-8337.
