I was just wondering if anyone has any luck chewing gum with dentures. I had to get dentures at an early age due to structural damage of my jaw bone. I have had my dentures now about a year and usually have no problem. But the 1 thing I miss is chewing gum. If anyone has any experiences please let me know. Thanks and Have a great day.
About 2 weeks after extractions I was able to chew gum BUT the dentist yelled at me and told me not to chew anything for 6 months....you should have seen her when I told her I ate a steak at 2months...she FREAKED...lol
I am 31 and have had mine for about 10 Months. I used to chew Freedent, among other brands, and actually liked it. My fear is getting it stuck all over the teeth. Then I would be on here asking how to get it off of them.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I really appreciate the replies.
If you do get gum stuck on your dentures, pop them in the freezer for about 10 minutes then just flick the stuff off, it is much easier to get gooey and sticky stuff off when it is sort of solid. The brief time in the freezer will not hurt them.
