Top 5 Tips for Life with Dentures

  1. 1. Top 5 Tips for Life with Dentures Dr. Paul V. Arkachi, D.D.S.. P.A. Boynton Beach Dentist
  2. 2. Wearing a new set of dentures comes with various adjustments and challenges in your daily life. One of these challenges is how to modify your diet for a stress-free eating experience.
  3. 3. This may mean that you have to give up some of your favorite foods but with a little tweak on your diet, you will find fresh ways of enjoying the foods and drinks that are part of your diet before your dentures came.
  4. 4. Here are some tips on what to eat or drink and what should be avoided when you have dentures.
  5. 5. Dentures need a moist mouth that has enough saliva to act as a lubricant between the dentures and your gums.
  6. 6. To keep it moist and allow saliva flow, it is important to stay hydrated by drinking enough water especially if you are into coffee. Caffeine intake in large amounts can cause dehydration. You can either lessen the caffeine or change to decaf to avoid dry mouth, which can cause your dentures to irritate your gums.
  7. 7. Avoid foods with sharp tiny pieces, such as popcorns, as these can be stuck in between or beneath your dentures.
  8. 8. A bit of food stuck in between your Boynton Beach FL dentures can be hard to get and may cause damage. Moreover, if the food gets stuck beneath your dentures, it can be intensely painful and uncomfortable. So instead of eating this kind of food, try having some air-puffed chips that aren’ t as sticky.
  9. 9. Stay away from chewy candies.
  10. 10. These candies are usually sticky and may allow your dentures to be dislodged from your mouth. An alternative to these sweet treats, you might want to consider chewing a sugar-free gum as it can help in the production of saliva. You can choose from a variety of gums that would best work with your dentures.
  11. 11. Steaks and other foods that are hard to chew may be a little bit more challenging when you are wearing dentures.
  12. 12. This can damage your dentures and put pressure on your gums as you chew. Too much pressure can cause sore spots underneath your dentures, which can be both painful and distressing. If you can’t keep your cravings on meat, cut it up into small pieces so it would be easier to masticate it without injuring your dentures.
  13. 13. While fruits and vegetables are essential components of our diet, people with dentures are advised to refrain from eating some of them raw.
  14. 14. Biting into these tough foods increases the pressure on the front teeth and may subsequently cause your dentures to dislodge. A solution to this is preparing smoothies made up of whole fruits. You can still get the nutrients from the fruit without hurting your dentures.
  15. 15. In addition to these tips, you can visit Boynton Beach FL dentist - Dr. Archacki for a more detailed understanding of how to maintain a strong set of dentures.
