Living well and staying healthy seems as though it should be a simple task that follows some basic rules for eating, exercising, and maintaining mood. However, as new trends to promote wellness seem to be discovered every day, it can be difficult to discern what is really best for the body. Since everyone’s goals and physiology is different, this can further confuse the issue.
For denture wearers, this can also become an overwhelming practice, especially when it comes to dietary choices. Foods which are healthy for the body may not always be so for dentures, and this can create somewhat of a dilemma. However, the point of a good set of dentures is to maintain quality of life rather than detract from it. To that end, many people with prosthetic teeth will simply adapt behaviors in order to still enjoy their tastes, while taking some extra care to avoid damage.
Pros And Cons
One very positive thing that denture wearers do find is that some foods that can be corrosive to tooth enamel will not actually affect the porcelain of the prosthetics in the same manner. This also allows for an enjoyment of variety which is not influenced by any sensitivities, since the nerve endings of the natural teeth are no longer present. For many people who need full dentures, this actually opens up a world of new flavors.
Although dentures wear differently than natural teeth, they will still be affected by stains. This can mean that soaking and cleansing measures do need to be carefully observed in order to keep up the natural appearance of the teeth. At times, full dentures may also need to be re-fabricated, since staining can happen unevenly. Some denture wearers will put this off, thinking that the process will be too time consuming to fit into their lifestyle.
