2nd opinion: If you are not having any luck with your dentist, then see a prosthodontist. They specialize in dentures, and may be able to help you work with what you have. The tissues shrink and we add soft material to help the fit as this changes. No need to live with it like it is. ...Read more

Is it hard to eat with false teeth?

Is it hard to eat with false teeth?

Depends what you eat: Generally speaking, it is more difficult because you only chew at about 50% chewing efficiency with complete upper and lower dentures.

So, if you like to eat these types of foods, like most of us do, then you may have a problem. ...Read more
