Getting used to your iDenture
As with anything new, it may take a while to get used to your iDenture. How long this will take is different for everyone, but there are a few things you can do that will help you adjust more quickly.
- Start by eating soft foods, such as eggs, mashed potatoes, chopped meat or fish.
- Avoid foods that can be sticky or hard to chew, such as chewing gum or boiled sweets.
- Take small bites, chew slowly and try to avoid biting food with your front teeth. Keep to chewing in the back of your mouth as you get used to your iDenture.
- As you master these steps, begin to move on to harder-to-eat items and before you know it, you’ll be enjoying everything you did before!
Practice speaking aloud – this is a great way to build confidence and get used to saying words that may be difficult to pronounce when you first wear your iDenture.
