How to Improve the Comfort of Eating with New Dentures

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Sundeep Rawal, DDS
How to Improve the Comfort of Eating with New DenturesDentures are dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. As much as they are molded to fit in your mouth, they can feel uncomfortable during the first few weeks of wearing them. Adjusting to these dental appliances might take time as your facial muscles adjust to the new structure. You might also experience changes in the ability to taste certain foods and difficulties in chewing. However, there are ways you can improve denture discomfort when eating.

Start With Soft Foods

When wearing new dentures, you should start with eating soft foods during the first few weeks. This will create sufficient time for your dentures to settle in the mouth and make it possible to start eating solid foods again. Start with using a liquid diet that includes soft foods like cooked cereals, puddings, apple sauce, soup broth, and boiled eggs.

Chew Properly and Cut Down Large Pieces

You should also chew food thoroughly and slowly before swallowing. Avoid gulping down large pieces of food because you can easily choke on them. Furthermore, you should slice vegetables and fresh fruits into very thin slices that you can easily chew. You can also cook vegetables before serving. While cereals and whole grains are good for your health, they can easily stick to your dentures. To avoid such occurrences, it is advisable to eat them with liquids to facilitate easier swallowing.

Use Denture Adhesives

Using denture adhesives will help when eating foods that need a strong bite. However, you should avoid extremely hard foods that can cause damage to the dentures. Adhesives will also prevent food particles and debris from sticking to your dentures. As a result, dental conditions like tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth sensitivity are prevented.
