Will I Be Able to Eat with My New Dentures?
Eating with dentures is a skill that is learned by each patient at their own pace. It is not the same as eating with real teeth (unless we provide you with implant treatment as well). Many patients will learn over time how to manage this.
The difference with dentures, is the patient’s own ability to create enough force when biting, to be able the crush the food, while not having the dentures slip or move within the mouth. This is the number one reason denture implants are so crucial to providing the natural ability as well as decreasing the bone loss in the future.
