Softliners in St. Catharines

Some Tips for Eating With Your Softliners

People come to us for softliners in St. Catharines when they have a need for dentures. These are people who have faulty teeth that might be diseased or others that are missing. It’s important for people to remember that adjusting to eating with dentures is only temporary.

Here are a few tips that you can use while you are adjusting to soft-liners.

Take It Easy At First

This is the first rule of thumb when you start eating with dentures. Start slowly and pick softer foods that don’t need a lot of chewing. Crunchy foods like raw meat and crackers, can cause inflammation and irritation by putting stress on your gums.

If you find your dentures occasionally slip when you smile cough or laugh, gently bite down and swallow so they reposition themselves.

Check on the Temperature of Your Food

Remember dentures insulate your mouth so it will be hard to gauge the temperature of food at first. The best idea is to test them with your lips. Here’s another useful tip when you’re first getting used to eating with softliners in St. Catharines.

Holding liquids in your mouth for any length of time can cause your bottom dentures to loosen.

Be Patient With Your Sense Of Taste

Bitter and salty foods might taste a little different at first. This is normal and you’ll find your sense of taste will return after a transition period .

After a short amount of time, you will be ready to go back to the foods you love and a more normal diet.

Here’s a few pointers for when that happens.

  • Items like cereal and whole-grain bread are good for your overall health. However, they can stick to your new dentures. Always have liquids on hand to make them easier to swallow.
  • It’s important to distribute your food and chew on both sides of your mouth. Your dentures will be kept stable while you are eating.
  • You might need to replace some items in your diet. For example, slow cooked meat and stew can be added to new diet containing eggs, fish and poultry. It’s best if you try to avoid hard to chew meats.

 Finally, you need to take some time when choosing adhesives for softliners in St. Catharines.

Denture Care



“If you need the services of a denturist, do not hesitate to contact Verroche Denture Clinic. I am thrilled that I did. Paul and Jonathan Verroche gave me my confidence back. I have my smile back (and believe me, I smile all the time now), my dentures look great, and I feel great. When I first visited their office, I was very nervous not knowing what to expect, knowing that I had to do something as my teeth were terrible; I was always trying not to smile. They explained the procedures that would take place and put my mind at ease. I was very impressed with their expertise, competence, and dedication to their patients. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering dentures. I am so very happy with the results — they are wonderful.”

“I was recommended to the Verroche Denture Clinic after much frustration with my dentist. I was having a lot of difficulty chewing causing me to choke often from trying to swallow partially chewed food. Being very self conscious about my smile which showed very worn and missing teeth, I decided to see the team at the Verroche Denture Clinic. I felt welcomed and confident on my first visit. The staff was very friendly and started on a plan for improving my bite and smile. Many options were discussed; medical consultations were suggested and within a very short time we all agreed on a treatment plan specially designed for me.I am now able to eat the foods that I had been missing for so long and the best part is that I can smile and eat with confidence. Thank you Verroche Team!”
