What to Expect with Dentures

If you have lost all or most of your teeth, dentures are a reliable replacement option. However, getting used to dentures can take some time. In order to make the transition to dentures as seamless as possible, it’s important to know what to expect when replacing your missing teeth with dentures. Below are a few things to be aware of:

  • When you first get your dentures, they might feel awkward. This is not uncommon, you will feel more comfortable with time.
  • Placing and removing your dentures will take practice.
  • Never force your denture into place, this could cause your dentures to become damaged or break.
  • Follow your dentist’s instructions for when you should wear and remove your dentures.
  • At first, your dentist might recommend for you to wear your dentures all the time. This is the fastest way to identify what areas might need adjusting.
  • When your denture fit incorrectly, it will put pressure on a particular area, and that area will become sore. Your dentist will adjust your denture to fit comfortably. After your dentures are adjusted and fit properly, they will most likely recommend that you take your dentures out before bed.
  • When you first get your dentures, avoid eating anything sticky or hard. Start by eating soft foods.
  • In the long run, dentures will help improve your speech. However, speaking with your dentures could take getting used to at first.
