Dental issues and eating healthy--how do I make it work?
Thursday, February 17, 2011
So I had a bicycle accident as a kid and broke my jaw and knocked most of my front tooth out.
So now I'm paying the price. In December, my TMJ started acting up and my jaw went out of alignment, putting too much pressure on my front crown and it came off. I ended up getting what was left of the tooth pulled and am in the process of getting a bridge. (Talk about feeling old--I always associated a bridge with little old ladies playing cards!)
Anyway, the temporary bridge keeps falling out. I need to eat only soft foods that don't put ANY pressure on my front or incisor teeth.
Any suggestions for healthy food that I don't have to bite into with the front teeth?
