I'm only a month into my full set...so I try to remind myself I still dont have full "biting" ability. But, I feel like my dentures are soo dull, that they dont tear my food well at all. I'm simply relying on the strength of my sore jaw to 'pummel" my food. This is stuff that we would never think about before now, and I just wondered. When I take them out and rub my finger on them, the edges of the teeth are so rounded and dull, not like my own teeth were. Not that they were filed sharp every day! lol Or maybe the permanent dentures will be sharper? My dentist kind of looked at me funny when I asked hi, and he really didnt have an answer to this for some reason.
