Getting used to new dentures takes time, and eating with your new dentures is going to take a little patience and practice. It's best to stick to soft foods while you adjust to your new teeth. Here's few of our favourite soft food suggestions to help you along.


After your extraction, and when you first get fitted for your new dentures, you will be required to stick to a diet of soft foods and liquids.

Planning ahead is the key to keeping your meals interesting and appetizing during this time.

Here's a brief list of soft foods to help get you started. It's a good idea to stock-up so that you have healthy, appetizing foods on-hand when hunger strikes.
