Yes. Your new teeth will act as replacement teeth and you will be able to eat food. It is recommended at first that you have a soft diet and you cut up your food into small pieces while you are becoming used to your dentures. It is always best practice to avoid chewing sticky foods and avoid chewing gum as they can end up damaging your dentures.

You can then start to add more foods back in until you are back on your original diet.

If you are still worried about the stability of your dentures while you are eating, it may be worth considering having an implant retained denture (if you are a suitable candidate).

Implants can be placed by an implant dentist into the jaw. These will act as anchors for your new teeth, and will securely hold in place your denture (known as an overdenture).

If your dentures are loose and don’t quite sit correctly, then it can cause you problems when trying to eat and chew foods. It may be that all you need is to have your denture relined or that your dentures are old and need to be replaced. We are happy to offer free consultations to discuss with you your options.
