Eating a hamburger with dentures can be tricky – here’s a no fail way to enjoy a juicy burger!

Hamburgers are difficult to eat with dentures. Why? Because biting a burger one puts a lot of pressure on the front of the denture. This pressure often pops the suction and moves both your lower and upper teeth. When that happens, it is so embarrassing – especially if it happens at a restaurant! Figuring out how to eat a hamburger with dentures requires changing your approach from a big shark bites that use the front teeth for biting to an approach that shifts pressure to the back teeth.

The best way to eat a hamburger with dentures and not dislodge your dentures is to use a knife and fork to cut small pieces from your burger. When you cut small pieces, it allows you to put them in your mouth and chew with your back teeth. It may sound crazy if you’re a country guy or gal who is used to chomping down on a burger, but don’t worry – many people who aren’t denture wearers eat their burgers this way just to minimize the mess! (Including my wife for one and she was raised in the country!) In general, cutting foods into smaller pieces is a great way to make eating with dentures easier.

Wearing dentures that don’t fit makes hamburgers even more difficult to eat. And not only hamburgers get difficult to eat, loose dentures make all chewing and eating hard whether you’re dealing with hard foods, soft foods or sticky food! Check out our article on ill fitting dentures to learn more about why dentures stop fitting well and, most importantly, how to fix them!
