Tips for Enjoying Your Favourite Festive Foods with Dentures
Advice from Your Denturists at
Baker Lanoue Denture Clinic
One of the highlights of the holiday season is enjoying all the festive foods with your family and friends. If you have dentures, you may be wondering if it’s still possible to indulge in your seasonal favourites. Fortunately, whether you have full or partial dentures, these dental prosthetics can help you enjoy the foods you love again.
For new denture wearers, learning how to eat certain foods can be initially frustrating. For instance, biting and chewing on anything frozen or chewy may feel a bit different than it did before. You may also even experience some anxiety about your dentures coming loose in the middle of your meal. If this sounds like you, the professional denturists at Baker Lanoue Denture Clinic can help ease your concerns so you can make the most out of this upcoming holiday season.
Don’t Worry about Your Dentures this Holiday Season
The holidays should not be a time to be worrying about your dentures. By following a few simple tips, you can fully enjoy all the festive season foods and maintain peace of mind when it comes to eating with full or partial dentures:
- Be Careful Around Hot Food and Drinks: If you are new to dentures, you may find that you have an increased sensitivity to hot food and drinks. Be mindful during meals and make sure that your food has cooled down sufficiently.
- Focus on Smaller Portions: Prolonged eating sessions with multiple large courses put excessive strain on your dentures for an extended period of time, increasing the likelihood of denture damage. By eating smaller portions more often and cutting your food into more manageable portions, you can reduce the wear and tear on your dentures.
- Schedule Your Post-Holiday Check-up: Enjoy the holidays carefree by scheduling a check-up and cleaning with your denturist in the New Year. Even if you indulge in a few treats that you should avoid, you can have peace of mind that your denture clinic can check to ensure that no damage has been done.
- Consider seeing your Denturist prior to the Holidays: If it has been some time since you have visited your denturist and you are unsure if your dentures are fitting optimally and functioning properly, consider seeing your denturist for a quick, no-obligation consultation to ensure your dentures are stable and as retentive as possible before your holiday season begins.
