Learning How to Chew Foods with New Dentures

Dentures are some of the most effective ways to replicate the presence of natural teeth, so it only stands to reason that your dentist may have fitted you with such an appliance. It can still be challenging to eat foods during the first few weeks. 

Here are three professional tips which will come in handy.

  • Avoid foods that are hard or chewy in the beginning, including apples, tough meat and crusty bread.
  • Start by consuming softer foods such as soup, scrambled eggs, yoghurt and oatmeal.
  • Be sure to care for your dentures in order to avoid any issues.

“Like all dental restorations, dentures require maintenance over time.”
