A Guide to Dining for New Denture Wearers

Affordable Quality Dentures

Learning how to eat with dentures is something that countless people have had to do, but that’s not to say that the transition is always instantly successful. Growing accustomed to dining while wearing dentures can take time, as well as a healthy dose of patience. However, by following a few fundamental steps, it’s possible to gain a sense of comfort and ease that will make eating a great meal as enjoyable an experience as ever.

Your dentist in Frederick will recommend that you adjust your diet for the first few days or weeks to ensure that you’re receiving proper nutrition since you won’t be able to easily eat the foods you’re likely accustomed to. Choose soft foods in the beginning to avoid irritation.

Until you’re more comfortable with your dentures, you should stay away from tough meats and foods that are hard, crunchy or sticky. Choose soft items or foods that have been cut into small pieces.

To reduce the risk of choking, distribute food evenly in your mouth and chew slowly and thoroughly. If you’re worried about being able to break food down easily, consider using a denture adhesive, which a dentist in Frederick can recommend.

Avoid hot beverages while you’re getting used to your dentures, since it’s easy to burn your mouth. Dentures provide a level of insulation from hot substances, causing you to possibly misjudge how high the temperature really is. Also, keeping hot liquids in your mouth for a long period of time before swallowing can loosen your dentures.

If you choose the right food and prepare it properly, learning to live with affordable quality dentures can be easier than you ever thought possible.
