Health Tip: Learning to Eat With Dentures

Suggestions for making the adjustment

(HealthDay News) -- Eating with dentures often requires some practice, and may initially trigger some discomfort and irritation.

The American Dental Association offers these suggestions for adjusting to your new dentures:

  • Start out with soft foods.
  • Cut up your food into small pieces.
  • Eat slowly, carefully using both sides of your mouth.
  • Slowly add a variety of foods until you have resumed your normal diet.
  • Take care when eating foods that are hot, hard or have sharp edges.
