The only really downfall of eating with false teeth is that, at sometimes it can be difficult as far as chewing, like say, like a tough steak or eating like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Whenever you're eating peanut butter or any kind of sticky foods or like toffee or any type of chewy foods, it can tend to get stuck to the roof of your mouth which is actually the palette of the denture. Do the fact that the palette is not as sleek as your normal palette, sometimes the peanut butter will get stuck in there or the toffee will kind of get stuck in there, so it'd be really, it's very difficult to get that out unless you actually remove the false teeth and then take it out and clean it.
