Can I eat normal with dentures?

Many people have problems eating with traditional dentures – so you’re not alone. At Skypointe Dental in NE Calgary, we believe that dentures should enhance life.

Our goal is to help you find a denture solution that can help you chew, drink, talk, and look better. Denture technology has changed a lot in the last few decades and there are options outside of traditional dentures.

 

3 common problems when eating with traditional dentures

Adjusting to eating with dentures may take some time. While they are a good replacement to your natural teeth, they may not feel the same as natural teeth would.

1. Foods may not taste the same
When you first start wearing your dentures, you may notice that some foods don’t taste the same as you remember. Apart from the fact that your sense of taste changes as you age, your denture can affect the overall taste of food too.

Dentures cover your upper palate, which is essential for proper taste and smell. You may find yourself reaching for the salt if foods don’t seem as flavourful as they once did.

Also, not cleaning dentures thoroughly can cause a bad taste to linger in your mouth. Dirty dentures may make food taste odd or different than what you are used to.

It’s useful being aware of this change of taste because it can contribute to a change in appetite. Alternatively, you could end up indulging in overly sweet or salty foods to satisfy your cravings.

Overeating sweet or salty foods may cause sickness and can lead to various other health issues, like heart problems or diabetes.

Keeping your dentures clean and minimizing the use of denture cream may help to reduce taste changes. You could also look into implant supported dentures.

 

2. Having a hard time chewing
Having a hard time chewing when you’re new to dentures is not surprising. You can’t feel them as well as your natural teeth.

  • To get used to them quicker, it may be beneficial to:
  • Avoid sticky food
  • Chew slower
  • Take smaller bites of food
  • Chew with both sides of your mouth

 

3. Food stuck in your dentures
Food can get stuck in your dentures, causing pain and irritation. If food gets stuck in your palate, it will uncomfortably rub against the roof of your mouth and gums.

Using a soft-bristled toothbrush instead of toothpicks may be useful in getting rid of food particles. Toothpicks can cause damage to your denture, so it’s best to avoid them.

An overnight denture-cleaning liquid treatment may be helpful to further eliminate bacteria. It’s important to continue flossing and to take proper care of your oral health in order to keep food particles and dirt at bay.

At Skypointe Dental, we have great denture solutions and we make sure they fit better, making it easier to smile, chew, and talk. Not worrying about dentures all the time can help lead to a better quality of life.

How good are dentures today?

Today’s dentures can be a great replacement for natural teeth. The advancements in dentistry made it possible to create quality dentures that are indistinguishable from real teeth. Usually, the best dentures are made of acrylic resin, porcelain, or partial metal.

Modern dentures are improved ongoing, and there is no need to treat dentures as a lower alternative for replacing your teeth. At SkyPointe Dental, we have provided dentures in Calgary NE, for many patients who are very satisfied with their dentures’ fit, appearance, and comfort.

How are dentures made?

Dentures are created by making an impression with a resin material to create a replica of your mouth. This process creates a comfortable and natural fit. Today’s dentures can be aesthetically pleasing and realistic-looking. Most importantly, dentures can keep your mouth healthy, aligned, and in the best shape possible.

Causes of broken dentures include:

  • Dropped dentures may break
