If you’ve lost teeth through dental disease, periodontal disease or physical trauma, dentures are a good tooth replacement solution both functionally and cosmetically. They are different from natural teeth, however, and there are some things you need to know to get the maximum benefit from your new dentures.
You should be able to resume eating a normal diet after your dentures are properly fitted, but make it a healthy one. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health warns that a lack of vitamins and minerals can cause sore spots in the mouth, weak jawbones, and bleeding gums, all of which can impact denture fit and comfort. Choose foods high in vitamins A, B, C and D as well as iron and calcium.
