Can I Eat With Permanent Dentures?

If you are a denture wearer, you probably deal with loose fitting dentures, which makes eating and speaking difficult. When deciding whether to get removable or permanent dentures, often patients are not sure how to weigh their options. Here is a look at the difference between the two, which may help you make a decision on which type of denture is best for you.

Miami Designer Smiles offers permanent dentures that not only provide you with a comfortable fit, but you can eat better than before! Just because the word “dentures” is in the name, do not let that fool you. Permanent dentures will help give you back your life.

Removable dentures have been the go-to solution for many patients who are missing all their teeth. The problem with removable dentures is that they often do not fit well right from the start. Removable dentures are not as durable, nor do they last as long as permanent dentures. Traditional dentures that are removable also need to be remade every few years or so, to ensure the most comfortable fit.

Other downsides to removable dentures are a restricted diet. Certain foods such as taffy, or other chewy candy, nuts, tough meat like steak, and popcorn, are simply difficult to eat with removable dentures. Plus, you could damage your dentures.

Permanent dentures are far superior, and you can eat any foods that you want. Permanent dentures are anchored to dental implants that serve as roots in your jawbone. Since the permanent denture is attached to the implant, you never have to worry about loose teeth or an embarrassing smile again. You can smile, talk, and eat with ease, when you are wearing permanent dentures.
