4 Tips for Eating with Dentures

Affordable Quality Dentures

Your first experience with new dentures might seem awkward, but don’t let it discourage you. You won’t have to renounce steak and corn on the cob forever, but you may need to take it easy at first. While you’re relearning the process of chewing with brand new dentures, try to remain patient. Before long, eating will feel almost as natural as used to.

Eat Soft Foods in the Beginning
For the first few weeks, focus on getting all the nutrients you need through foods that are easy to eat. These include soft foods like purees, soups, scrambled or soft-boiled eggs, applesauce, and cooked cereals. Be careful when consuming hot liquids because dentures prevent you from feeling heat levels, which can lead to burning your mouth.

Cut Your Food into Small Pieces
To chew more easily, cut your food into smaller pieces than you normally would, and slice fresh produce into thin slivers. Eat chewy breads with a beverage to moisten them and make chewing easier.

Avoid Crunchy, Sticky, and Hard-to-Chew Foods
While your dentures are still feeling awkward and unfamiliar, stay away from crunchy vegetables and fruits, sticky foods like peanut butter, and tough cuts of meat. You’ll be able to add these kinds of foods back into your menu once you’re more comfortable with your dentures.

Practice Chewing
Distribute the food evenly in your mouth and chew slowly and thoroughly to help keep your dentures in place. You may want to ask your dentist in Baltimore to recommend a denture adhesive, which can help to prevent slipping. Don’t let a few chewing challenges get you down. After a little practice, it’ll get easier in no time.
