The Art of Eating with New Dentures

Learning to eat with new dentures can be a little challenging. You’ll have to restructure your old eating habits, and learn tips and tricks for getting the same work done with teeth that aren’t quite as responsive. Don’t give up; there are many ways to make the process easier. It won’t take long for you to adjust to your new teeth and enjoy your favorite meals again.

What to Eat – Initially, choose soft foods that you can eat easily. These include soups, cooked cereals, applesauce, puddings, and ice cream. Soft-boiled or scrambled eggs and tender meats are good protein choices. Dentures prevent you from feeling heat levels, so be careful when consuming hot liquids until you’re accustomed to wearing your dentures.

Avoid These Foods – Tough cuts of meat, crunchy fruits and vegetables, and hard candy should be avoided while your dentures are feeling unfamiliar. Sticky foods like peanut butter are also difficult to handle in the beginning. As you become accustomed to your dentures, you’ll be able to start adding these and other foods back into your mealtimes.

Food Preparation Tips Slice your food into smaller pieces than you usually would to make it easier to chew. Eat chewy bread along with a beverage to help moisten it and make it easier to swallow.

Chewing – Chew your food slowly and thoroughly. To help keep your dentures in place, distribute the food evenly in your mouth. Your dentist in Ocoee may recommend denture adhesives to help prevent slipping. With a patience and practice, you’ll get the hang of it, so don’t get discouraged.
