Learning to eat with dentures can take a week or longer to feel fully natural, but with these simple steps, you’ll be back to enjoying your favourite foods in no time.
It’s best to adhere to a liquid diet for the first few days, which includes things like apple sauce, pudding, oats, soup, and so on. Attempting to chew right away could be highly painful and potentially harmful to your delicate gums, so let them a few days to adjust to the dentures before moving on to solid meals.
Chew slowly and evenly.
Most people chew on one side of their mouth more than the other, but denture wearers may find that this causes their prosthetic to slip out of place. When you’re ready to resume solid foods, chew slowly and evenly on both sides of your mouth. This can help keep your dentures more stable, and you’ll ultimately do it without even realizing it.
Take Care With Hot Liquids
We all enjoy a cup of coffee or a cup of hot chocolate, but you should be particularly cautious with them shortly after you get your dentures. They have an insulating characteristic that makes it difficult to notice when something is excessively hot until it is too late. To ensure that a hot drink is safe, take a small taste first.
Reduce the size of your food by cutting it into smaller pieces.
Cutting your food into smaller pieces while you’re still learning to chew will make your work easier and reduce the amount of strain on your gums until they adjust.
Be Wary of Difficult Foods
Red meat, for example, may be incredibly tough to chew with dentures, so anytime you consume it, make sure it’s been stewed or cooked slowly over a long period of time. Items like chicken, fish, eggs, and beans are other good sources of protein that are simpler to chew.
Use Caution When Eating Sticky Foods
Sticky items such as candy, peanut butter, gum, and certain berries can easily become stuck between your dentures and your gums, causing irritation and infection. Enjoy them, but make sure to thoroughly clean your dentures and mouth afterwards.
It’s OK if you’re a little sore.
Even if you take it slowly, getting acclimated to your new dentures puts a lot of strain on your body, so expect some soreness in your jaw and/or gums during the process. If you develop a painful patch on your gums, or if the pain becomes chronic or severe, call your dentist straight once so that your dentures can be adjusted.
You’ll be eating normally in a few weeks if you follow these suggestions and have a little patience. Learning to chew with dentures isn’t easy, but it’s certainly preferable to living a life with several missing teeth, right? You’ll be eating supper with your family and friends before you realise it, and the last thing on your mind will be your dentures.
