Your denture teeth and your natural
teeth are used to reduce the food for swallowing. You need a
certain amount of biting force and muscle coordination to chew
Large differences exist amongst denture
wearers. Your bite and chewing forces can be reduced when
dentures replace natural teeth. As a consequence to this your
eating habits (types of food, amount of food, where you eat, even who
you eat with) are affected. We would like you to enjoy your
meal with your dentures being optimised for chewing your food.
It is therefore important that you
choose high quality denture teeth that can aid in the digestion
process, keeping loss of chewing efficiency to a minimum.
How well you use your tongue and cheeks
to manipulate the food particles between teeth also effects how well
you chew your food. Also the production of sufficient amounts of
saliva is indispensable for efficient chewing.
