Eating with dentures in your mouth is nothing like chewing with natural teeth!
If dentures are in your near future, then it helps to know what you should plan for.
What to Know About Chewing with Dentures
Eating with dentures does bring along several challenges. At first, your prosthesis may feel very bulky. You might gag easily and salivate more than usual. All of this can complicate the eating process initially, but you will overcome the obstacles with time.
Dentures impact your ability to taste food because they block sensation in the roof of your mouth. They also can’t grip foods with the strength that natural teeth do.
A new or poorly-fitting denture can loosen and “float” around your mouth when you try to eat. This can result in food accumulating under your denture every time you eat.
Tips for Successfully Eating with Dentures
Eating with a denture is challenging, but not impossible. See your dentist for more tips.
