Denture Wearers Can Rediscover the Joy of Food

dca-blog_secrets-to-savor-eating-with-dentures

One of the greatest joys of dentures is rediscovering the joy of food. Remember those thick steaks, crunchy snacks, and gooey goodies that were a challenge to chew? Now you can bring back these favorites, but you may need to learn some simple tips on how to eat them with ease.

When you first start wearing your new, affordable quality dentures, chewing will feel different and you may fear that your dentures will slip when you’re eating. These concerns are normal, so with patience and practice and you’ll soon be eating everything once again.

These dental care hints will help you get comfortable with eating when you first get your new dentures:

  • Eat soft foods at first, and as you get comfortable, start adding crunchy and chewy foods.
  • Cut your food into small pieces and take little bites as you adjust to your dentures.
  • Chew foods slowly and chew on both sides of your mouth to even out the pressure on your dentures.
  • Taste hot foods and sip hot beverages carefully to avoid burning your mouth.
  • If you eat firm or sticky foods, you may want to use a denture adhesive so your new teeth feel more secure.

Eating will get easier when you get used to wearing dentures. If it’s still difficult after a couple of weeks, see an affordable dentist in Flint who can advise you on how to enjoy eating again.
