Q. I wear dentures now. Any pointers I should know about?
The following are some tips for eating with dentures:
Ÿ Don't bite with your front teeth or pull your food outward from your mouth.
Ÿ Chew food on both sides of your mouth simultaneously to stabilize your dentures.
Ÿ Cut food into small pieces.
Ÿ When you first eat with your dentures, you should avoid sticky foods, raw vegetables and hard-to-chew meats.
Ÿ It is more difficult to feel inside your mouth when you wear dentures, so be careful with hot foods and anything with small bones.
