It's no secret that getting used to prosthetics will take a while and irrespective of what the fixture is, you have to train your body in a way so that it gets the most benefit out of the prosthetic without damaging it in any way. If you have a new set of dentures and you are wondering how you can eat your favorite foods without compromising your dentures, then here are a few things you should do.
When you just get your dentures, you won't know how much pressure it can handle and what you can and cannot eat with it. In such situations, the best thing to do is to start small. Always cut the food into bite-sized pieces and give it a try.
While you will be able to eat most food items, things like nuts could be a little tricky. If you are fond of nuts or you need to consume them as part of your diet, then you may want to look at the powdered version of nuts or some other form that would be softer to chew. You have to remember that something too hard like hard candy could potentially break your dentures and it could also make it loose, which is not ideal.
Sticky Food Items
Sticky food items are also best avoided because this could potentially damage your dentures. Foods that have a caramel-like consistency should be avoided. It's also important for you to focus on the amount of food you put into your mouth. While biting corn on the cob will pull your dentures out, shaving off the corn and eating it is something that will allow you to enjoy corn and not risk damaging your dentures.
