New Dentures - Will it be difficult to eat?

Will it be difficult to eat?

Initially it may be difficult to eat, as your mouth is still getting used to the feel of the denture and your muscles take time to adjust. Over a short period of time, it should become easier once you are used to the dentures. Start with soft foods and make sure to chew evenly on each side. Avoid hard and sticky foods for example, lollies & toffees and chewing gum.

Honestly, there are so many types of dentures, some are easier to manage than others - Darius will be able to give you more information based on your individual mouth and denture needs.
