If you have just been fitted for dentures, it can take a little while to adjust. Partial or full dentures, crowns and bridges can all cause difficulties in the everyday life of the wearer, and you may find that you need to adopt certain habits until you become used to them.
As we get older we are often faced with a whole plethora of ailments. One of the most frustrating is our inability to enjoy the simpler things in life like our favourite foods because our mouths are not as they should be. Some people suffer from loose dentures that cause ulcers and the inability to chew food properly; others suffer from unsightly teeth that are often dark, painful and embarrassing; and many others suffer from bad gums that harass even more.

Living and adopting to your new denture:
1. Learning to eat
Begin with foods that are either liquidised or easy to eat, such as soups and smoothies. Gradually introduce your usual foods back into your diet, teaching yourself the dynamics of eating with dentures.
It may sound obvious, but you should chew food slowly and evenly with your back teeth – do not gulp foods down. It is also important not to keep warms drinks in your mouth for too long, as it may loosen your denture glue. Read about the difference between dentures and implants.
2. Learning to talk
It’s likely that you will be self-conscious when first getting used to talking with dentures, but this phase needn’t last long.
You may feel as if your dentures are too big for your mouth and that it takes more effort to speak, but you will soon become accustomed to them and less aware of how they feel. A good tip is to read aloud in bed, to practice talking in private. Find out more.
3. Taking care of your dentures
Dentures can be expensive, so you’ll want to look after them properly. Using the right cleaning products will become an important part of your daily routine – you can now get whitening pastes, five-minute cleaning products and overnight solutions.
