Soft Food Suggestions for People with New Dentures

Learning to eat with new dentures takes a little patience and practice. Our Surrey dentist recommends that you stick to soft, easy to eat foods while you adjust to your new dentures. Here are a few tasty suggestions to get you started. 


You will be required to stick to a diet of soft foods and liquids after your extraction, and when you first get fitted for your new dentures.

To keep your meals interesting and appetizing during this time it's a good idea to plan ahead and stock up on foods you will enjoy.

Here are a few soft food suggestions from our Surrey dentist to get you started:
