New Dentures? No Problem.


Chatting with loved ones and eating a great meal are two of life’s joys that new denture wearers should not have to sacrifice. However, because both of these activities can be surprisingly difficult with dentures, at least initially, these helpful hints can come in handy. The following information can get any new denture wearer off to a terrific start.

During the first few days of wearing a new set of affordable quality dentures, eating will feel somewhat strange. The best thing to do is to accept that some adjustments will have to be made and to exercise a good amount of patience. It is wise to select food items that are easily chewed and swallowed, including such things as fish, cooked vegetables, eggs, yogurt, and ice cream. New denture wearers should take smaller bites than they normally would and avoid biting hard with their front teeth. Foods that are excessively chewy in nature, such as caramels, ought to remain off of the menu for at least the short term.

Once dentures have been worn for anywhere between two weeks and three months, wearers are likely to find that eating has become far easier and much more natural. This is the point when additional food items can be added to the menu, such as firmer vegetables, chewier meats, and fruits that require a bit more work to chew. In order to ensure that this expanded variety remains manageable, many denture wearers use zinc-free adhesive products to help form a protective barrier that prevents seeds, nuts, or other food particles from irritating their gums.

If speaking clearly with dentures proves challenging, and it does for many new wearers, there are a few key tricks that can remedy the problem. Because words containing “f” and “s” sounds can be particularly cumbersome, it can be extremely helpful to practice speaking out loud while standing in front of a mirror and to read aloud to others to gain greater confidence. Lastly, many new denture wearers find that biting down and consciously swallowing immediately before they begin to speak works wonders by setting the dentures into their proper position.
