Dentures are functional replacements for missing teeth. When you first have dentures, your dentist can advise you on the best foods to eat while you adjust to them.

  • Hard foods such as tough meats and sticky foods like candy are best avoided while you get used to dentures.
  • Your dentist will help maintain your dentures, allowing you to comfortably chew your favorite foods.
