What can I eat while I get used to my new dentures?

If you've just gotten new dentures, you will probably need some time and practice to adjust to eating with them. In this post, our Burnaby dentists recommend some soft foods to ease the transition. 

Meal Planning

When you receive your new dentures (and after your dentist extracted your teeth), you'll need to eat a diet of soft foods and liquids that you can mix and match to make fast, nutritious and delicious meals you'll still enjoy. 

Some of our favourite options here include rice or risotto, pasta and noodles, eggs, soft breads, macaroni and cheese and soft-cooked vegetables. 

Here are some soft foods recommended by our dentists. Stock up on these before starting the denture process. 

Soft food recommendations for people with new dentures:
