CINCINNATI, Apr 29, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- According to a recent survey by Wakefield Research on behalf of Fixodent, denture wearers are more likely to limit their behavior, ignore certain foods and avoid certain social situations due to their dentures.

Even after adjusting to life with dentures and embracing their new smile, many people find it difficult to regain their everyday routine. While there's no need to stop indulging in great meals with dentures, 72% of respondents admit they avoid some type of food, including: corn on the cob (38%), nuts (29%), apples (25%) and steak (19%). Even between meals they're skipping things - with over half (52%) of respondents avoiding gum.
In addition to ordering "denture-safe" food, more than 1 in 3 denture wearers admit to skipping an activity such as: eating out in public (29%), being intimate (16%) and going out with friends or family (11%) because they feel self-conscious about their dentures.

This includes: food left under dentures after eating (64%), gum irritation or soreness (34%), pain while eating (18%) and bad breath (14%).
