These foods may help prevent discomfort and provide adequate nutrition as you adjust to your new dentures.

Foods To Avoid:

By avoiding these foods, particularly in the early stages of wearing your dentures, you might be able to prevent potential issues and enjoy a more comfortable adaptation period.

Overcoming Common Challenges As A New Denture Wearer

Adapting to dentures is more than just a physical adjustment—it’s a lifestyle change. Here are some common challenges you may face:

Learning To Speak Clearly

Speaking clearly with dentures might take a bit of practice. Reading aloud and repeating tricky words can help accelerate your adaptation.

Eating Properly

You can start with soft foods cut into small pieces. Chew slowly, using both sides of your mouth to keep the dentures in place.

Maintaining Oral Hygiene

Use a soft toothbrush to clean your gums, tongue and the roof of your mouth every morning before you put your dentures in.
