Re: Immediate denture eating problem.
Take heart, it takes some getting used to. I've had mine since December 15th and it has taken me a couple of months to get to the point that I can now eat most anything I want. I learned part of the secret is to take small bites. Remember too to try and chew on both sides that way your bottom place won't rock as much. I found that the Seabond pads on my bottom dentures helps to cushion my gum and allows enough suction. If I want extra hold, I apply Fixadent to the lower denture, than put the Seabond pad on top of that and then Fixadent on top of that. The only reason I'm going through all of this now is that mine are immediate dentures and I'm just trying to get through the next couple of months until I can start the process of getting my permanent dentures. I know I can go back into the dentist and get a reline but the last time it took soo long and I had such problems with the reline I've decided just to use the stick-em stuff to keep mine in for now. Good luck to you. It does get easier as you get used to them. Try not to get too fustrated. Take small bites and keep on the soft foods until you feel comfortable.
