Eating

Eating will seem strange at first. Initially you may find it easier to practice eating soft, non sticky foods and to cut your food into smaller pieces. Taking smaller mouthfuls and chewing slowly will also help.
With natural teeth it is easy to bite food with the front teeth. This is because each tooth is separately fixed in the jaw bone. With dentures where all the teeth are joined together. It is therefor easier to chew with your side teeth to help prevent your denture slipping.

Many denture wearers worry that they will lose their sense of taste, this is not the case as we have taste buds in our tongues as well as our palates. After a short while, and with a little patience, you will continue to enjoy your food to the full.
