Juicy Fruits

Summer is synonymous with fresh, juicy fruits. Watermelon, berries, peaches, and strawberries are not only delicious but also gentle on dental implants. These sweet treats are soft and can be eaten by themselves, put on a salad, paired with ice cream, or turned into smoothies!

On The Grill

If you step outside and don’t smell the savory scent of a backyard grill, is it truly summer yet? Nothing beats a good BBQ picnic and with dental implants, you can comfortably enjoy all your grilled favorites. Tender cuts of meat like chicken, fish, or steak are perfect choices for healthy and delicious meals.

Crispy Vegetables

Fresh vegetables are another summer staple that can be great for people with dental implants. Fresh cucumbers, bell peppers, and eggplants are all scrumptious and can be paired with almost anything or eaten by themselves! In addition, eating these nutritious carbs will provide a plethora of important vitamins and minerals to support your dental health.

Rich Desserts

What kind of summer break doesn’t include a bevy of excellent dessert options? While excessive sugar can be bad for your oral health, if you’re taking care of your teeth, a little indulgence won’t hurt! Try some cool yogurt or ice cream. These treats are soft and perfect for cooling down on a hot day. Plus, they come in a variety of flavors to satisfy any sweet tooth.

As you can see, there are plenty of incredible and nutritious summer options you can enjoy with dental implants! These foods are not only delicious but also easygoing on your implants, ensuring you can savor every bite without worry. So, dig in and make the most of your summer with confidence!
