At my dental office in Valparaiso we are always teaching patients about the effects different foods and beverages can have on teeth, and the importance of maintaining excellent dental hygiene at home. The same is true for denture patients! It’s important to try and avoid foods and drinks that can literally be a real pain. We’ve put together a list of some of the good foods, (along with the not-so-good) as a reminder. Check it out!
These foods are less likely to get caught in dentures or cause unwanted movement that can be uncomfortable. It’s also a good idea for denture wearers to be even more vigilant about what foods and drinks they’re enjoying this time of year as the holidays get into full swing. Here are some denture-friendly ideas compiled just for you:
Now that we’ve gone over some of the denture-friendly foods you can enjoy, it’s time to take a look at some of things that might be best to avoid. And remember, if you ever have any questions about your dentures and how to properly care for them, give your Valparaiso dentist a call.
My Valparaiso dental office is always ready to answer your questions. Please do not hesitate to give us a call at any time. We’re always happy to help.
