To those of you without teeth - what is it like to gum everything you eat?

Asked by EgaoNoGenkiAB (40points) 4 weeks ago

I wonder what “gumming” everything you eat is like. Can you describe it?

And do you eat with dentures? If you don’t, why not? If you do, how different does it feel to eat with dentures as opposed to regular teeth?

Most people who don’t have teeth have decided to live their lives naked. That way they can live to their potential as “Gummy Bares”

It’s hard to figure out, @Egao, if your are serious or deliberately obtuse..

I’m not sure but my grandpa said that if he had a wish that he would have taken care of his teeth growing up and have his teeth back.

Just eat soft foods like boiled eggs, toast, cereal, fish, yogurt, cottage cheese, beans, etc….or at the worst, baby food (in jars.) Not sure you need to actually ‘gum’ anything….lol. I’ve heard it’s hard to eat steak and tough meat, hard nuts, etc…otherwise it doesn’t seem to be much of an issue with the oldsters.
