Due to is going to be difficult to chew and swallow, we recommend for the first couple of weeks to follow a soft diet with extra fluids. For example: mashed potatoes, steam fish, cottage cheese, yogurt, protein and supplement drinks.
Equally important, avoid eating with your front teeth and try to use both sides to chew.

Talking

A good tip is to read aloud so you can get used to your new dentures and to improve your speech.

The general recommendation is to remove the denture at night before you go to sleep. This will allow your gums to rest and breath.
