Can I Eat Normally With My Dentures?
Posted on 11/1/2023 by Dr. Hallas
When a dentist suggests that dentures are your choice for teeth replacement, you will have many questions to ask about them. Dentures are a cheaper and more effective option for replacing teeth. Better still, today dentures can be stabilized and properly retained with dental implants. One of the many questions you need answers about dentures is whether you can eat normally with them. Yes, You Can Eat Normally with Them Most patients have to learn the way they can use their dentures properly. For that reason, it takes some time to get accustomed to using them. After a while, a patient should find it easy and comfortable to eat with their dentures on. Even so, it may take a little more time for one to become comfortable with sticky or harder foods. If you find yourself in such a situation, you can consider using a small amount of denture adhesive to help stabilize them and hold them in place during the time you are learning to get comfortable with them. It is a process that may take some time, however, you will eventually get through the challenges. What About Chewing Gum? Gum tends to stick to the plastic used to craft dentures. As such, it may interfere with the seal on the dentures or break it. When the seal breaks, it loosens the dentures. Again, the gum may get stuck and remain on the dentures, eventually hardening and discoloring there. This way, the dentures too may become stained. Therefore, regardless of the gum you chew, remember that the two do not work well together. Do away with gum chewing if you want your dentures to remain in good form and avoid any form of damage or discoloration.
