Dental problems are common in later life and can affect the foods we eat. Hard-to-chew foods are often replaced by soft foods, which may restrict the amount of choice and variety in the diet, potentially limiting nutrient intake. Ill-fitting dentures can also make it uncomfortable to eat. If you have any questions about denture care, speak to your dentist.
Try to keep sugar containing foods and drinks to mealtimes. Chewing sugar-free gum can help to protect teeth and, of course, brush them regularly with a fluoride toothpaste and visit the dentist for regular check-ups.
