A Feast of Facts About Dining with Dentures

Does eating with dentures leave a bad taste in you mouth? Well, your dentures don’t have to spoil your dinner. Now, your meals can be made much enjoyable with these savvy tips for eating with ease.

While dentures are common in dental care, it’s not uncommon to need time to get used to them, especially when it comes to eating.

You may need to adjust your eating habits slightly when you first get dentures. Family dentistry experts at Advanced Dental Care of Mount Dora suggest that it helps to first eat soft foods such as oatmeal and applesauce, which can help you get comfortable with chewing while wearing dentures. You can add firmer foods when you’re ready.

In the beginning days of wearing dentures, you should be careful with crunchy and sticky foods. These kinds of food can be hard to eat with your own natural teeth, but trying to eat them with a new set of dentures can be challenging. You don’t need to avoid these firmer foods forever, just add them back slowly.

Chewing can also be a challenge, but if you chew carefully, you can avoid choking or loosening your dentures. If you’re not eating certain foods because you worry that they’ll loosen your dentures, ask an affordable dentist at Advanced Dental Care of Mount Dora about using denture adhesives.

In addition to choosing the right foods and chewing correctly, you need to prepare your food carefully. Cutting your food into small pieces and thin slices will make it easer to chew. Tougher cuts of meats should be cooked until they’re tender and harder foods to a softer consistency.

With some patience and practice, eating with dentures can be a pleasure.
