Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you might have big plans with someone special in your life. However, if you wear dentures, you might be concerned about how your false teeth will influence your ability to date, as well as kiss! Continue reading below to learn more about why you have nothing to worry about when it comes to kissing with dentures, along with a few must-know tips for those who are dating with dentures.

Is It Possible to Kiss While Wearing Dentures?

The simple answer here is yes, you can absolutely still kiss while wearing dentures. In fact, kissing with dentures is more-or-less the same as kissing without them. As long as your dentures are held securely in place and fit well, they shouldn’t be an obstacle nor fall out when kissing!

Tips for Dating with Dentures

Whether you’re relatively new to wearing dentures, or you’ve had your false teeth for quite some time, you should head into the dating scene with confidence and poise—after all, you’ve got a great-looking set of pearly whites! However, many people are still afraid of what others might think about their dentures, or they might still encounter speedbumps when it comes to wearing their dentures out in public. With that in mind, here are some tips to keep in mind:

·        Practice Speaking Beforehand – Needless to say, wearing dentures can sometimes make speech difficult. However, if you practice speaking beforehand at home with someone you trust or in front of the mirror, you’ll likely have an easier time chatting during your date.

·        Watch What You Eat – One surefire way to disrupt your dentures is by eating problematic foods; particularly tough cuts of meat, hard or crunchy items, and chewy and stick candies are all ill-advised. As long as your meal choice includes items you can safely and confidently chew and eat, you should be all set.

·        Keep Your Dentures Clean – You should aim to keep your dentures as clean as possible; not only will they look shiny and bright, but dentures can also cause your breath to smell foul if you aren’t cleaning them regularly. Use the appropriate solutions for cleaning your dentures and be sure you’re doing it as needed; your dentist can also provide you with tips for keeping your restorations clean.

·        Don’t Be Afraid to Smile – Your smile is often the first thing that strangers will notice upon meeting you, so you shouldn’t hesitate to show off those teeth and make a good first impression!
