Bite for Bite: Putting Bite Force Into Perspective
We all know that a healthy diet is a key factor in a healthy life, but a recent White Paper explains how proper nutrition begins with a person’s ability to bite and chew.
Inadequate dental health may lead to:
Limited dietary choices
Decreased nutritional uptake
Bone reabsorption of mandible and maxilla
The appropriate bite force is necessary
To properly chew and digest foods
To receive the nutritional benefit of foods
For improved patient quality of life
The normal or average range of bite force in adults with their full dentition is between 650N and 1000N. Regaining bite force can positively impact health and quality of life
