Unfortunately, many people find their dentures change the way they eat. There are some things they just can’t eat with their dentures. Maybe when you ate out, you could find enough variety to enjoy eating, but now that you’re limited to your own cooking, you find that there’s just not enough that you can eat that you like.
Better dentures can improve your diet options. There are really three main issues that make dentures limit your ability to eat. First, there’s the fact that dentures get pushed out of place, which we’ve talked about already. Then there’s the fact that dentures limit your bite forces. If you can’t bite down hard enough, there are many foods that are either impossible or severely tedious to eat. Finally, there’s the question of whether your denture teeth are sharp and sturdy enough to cut through foods. Dentures with plastic teeth suffer by comparison with dentures that have ceramic teeth.
