Living and Eating with Dentures – Mastering the Basics

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

In years past, if you were fortunate enough to find affordable quality dentures, they were generally uncomfortable and didn’t look realistic. Today, it’s not difficult to locate an affordable dentist who can give you full or partial dentures or even a denture implant that won’t kill your budget. Unfortunately, getting used to wearing dentures still takes a little patience. The biggest challenges are talking and eating. Here are a few tips that can help.

How to Eat with Dentures

To make eating less of a challenge, choose foods that are soft or easy to chew and swallow. Soft cheeses, warm cereals, chopped meats, eggs, cooked vegetables, and puddings are good examples. Take smaller bites than you normally would, and chew thoroughly but slowly. Try not to bite down with your front dentures. Don’t eat hard or chewy foods, and avoid chewing gum. After a couple of weeks, you may feel confident enough to start adding foods that are harder to eat. Eventually, you’ll be able to resume your normal diet.

Learning to Talk with Dentures

Speech problems are common in new denture wearers, and it can be embarrassing. You may find it difficult to pronounce certain words. Practicing in private by reading aloud in front of a mirror can help. If you have problems with your dentures shifting while you speak, bite down and swallow before you begin to talk; this trick sets your dentures in their proper position. Using a denture adhesive may also be helpful, especially when you first start wearing your new teeth. As you gain experience by talking and eating, your confidence will return, and your dentures will feel more like a natural part of your mouth.
