Can I eat with partial dentures?
It will take some time to adjust to wearing your partial denture, but because it is designed to precisely fit your mouth and stay securely in place, you should not experience any problems with eating. Start off by eating soft or easy-to-chew foods, and chew on both sides of the mouth so that you are applying even pressure to your teeth. Within a few weeks, you should be able to eat most foods with confidence.
How do I clean a partial denture?
Cleaning a partial is very important. Tartar tends to collect between the partial appliance and the surrounding teeth. Patients should be sure to thoroughly brush and floss their natural teeth and clean their partial with daily brushing to reduce plaque buildup and decrease the likelihood of the partial developing permanent stains. If we recommend that you use a denture cleaner for your partial, be sure to purchase one with the ADA seal of approval.
