I damn near choked myself with spaghetti and it was gross.
Tried to chew that sh*t and it dangled down the back of my throat and I thought I was going to die.  
I don't own my dentures

Well..... Since I've gotten my denture I've really been enjoying ALOT of stuff I haven't in a long time. Hot coffee... Ice tea.... Root beer float.... The 1 thing i started to enjoy then realized was not such a good idea was peanut butter sandwich. Lol. It sticks. Everywhere...

Spanky, I just saw this post. I have same problem...and that's why I can't eat with dentures in. Maybe if I go out I can manage mashed potatoes. While I chew, some sneaks pass and goes down my throat. After a few times of near choking, I just decided to eat without them. Which has caused me to only eat alone and that in itself has become a problem. I can't do that forever. But, you've reminded me that I have to work on this. I've just gotten into habit of not wearing mine. My bottoms hardly fit at all, they just hit together against the tops. The bottoms don't go slightly behind the uppers. I just do not like learning to eat again. And since I've been told I'll have to have new ones made.... and can't afford... I have no choice. But, I better get to it. Knowing someone else has this problem but can at least try to eat with them has got me thinking. So thank you...im sorry for your spaghetti incident, but I 'll start trying. Thanks.

That is on my bucket list as soon as my temp dentures (Full up&Lo) settle down. It's now 4 weeks and the gums are less sore but still have some fitting issues to trim. Foods?? LOL I think Omelets, Noodle soups, Ice Cream (YES) , it's amazing how hunger makes for a lot of creative cooking LOL I still can't eat sandwiches, Oh well I have hope in getting settled in with my dentures.

Oh you mean enjoyed for a second or 2 then realized it wasn't such a great idea? Bubble gum. I had good suction on top and bottom with the set I made. Thought I'd try bubble gum... Pulled 2 of the teeth out, and had to repair! Lol

The only thing I truly enjoy is ice cream. If this could be my main food, I would be one happy camper!!
