How Do You Eat With Partial Dentures?

When you first get your partial dentures you will need to go through an acclimatization period to get used to them.

We advise a soft diet to begin with and to eat evenly across your denture to ensure even pressure on both sides. Cutting your food up until smaller pieces will make it easier to eat as well. Avoiding food that is either sticky or hard is advisable as you can damage your new dentures. During the adjustment period it is also advisable to avoid chewing gum.

A partial denture is a medical device designed to help improve your life and to regain the functionality you had lost. Just like any medical device, they are also a foreign entity you have put on your body. Our bodies are very adaptive and will react to these foreign entities. So this bedding in period is important to get used to the dentures, so you are able to enjoy your life without realising they are fake teeth.

We believe in making high quality custom made dentures that can fit into your lifestyle. The better made the denture, the more easily it will fit into your life with minimal impact. We do take our teeth for granted until we start to have problems. When we then need to go down the route of false teeth, you will want an option that regains the functionality you lost but also restores your confidence to enjoy your every day life.
