Deciding to get dentures is a big decision for someone to make. A handful of responsibilities come along with it, and there are a handful of questions people have about them. Whether that be about cleaning, eating, or other upkeep responsibilities.
Before you make the decision to get a denture set, we should go over a few things anyone should know beforehand.
Let’s start with eating. It’s important to know that dentures actually block your taste buds, so you will likely taste less of whatever meal you’re consuming. Also, you will lose a certain amount of bite force when wearing dentures and trying to eat. You actually lose up to 80% of your natural bite power. You must be careful with the types of foods you eat, as some may be too hard for your dentures to handle. It’s important to know the list of foods you can enjoy so that you do not end up avoiding eating as a whole. Maintaining the cleanliness of your set will go a long way in your enjoyment of food.
