If you’re wearing dentures, it’s important to be mindful of the foods you eat. Some foods can be difficult to chew and may cause discomfort or damage to your dentures. Here are some foods to avoid when wearing dentures:

- Sticky foods like chewing gum
- Hard, crunchy foods like raw vegetables, fruit, crackers, popcorn, crusty bread, and whole nuts
- Stringy meat

Remember, when you first get your dentures, it’s best to stick to soft foods that don’t require a lot of chewing.

Gradually transition to solid foods, but be sure to cut them into small pieces and chew slowly. Avoid holding any drink in your mouth for too long as it could loosen the bottom dentures. And don’t forget to avoid spicy foods as they can irritate sores that may exist underneath the false teeth on your gums.
