Dentures are one method to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. Many patients require a complete set of dentures if all of their original teeth have been removed, while others require a partial set only. Dentures are designed to match the particular needs of each patient.

When your dental needs require the removal of your remaining teeth, your mouth and gum tissues will need some time to heal before your new dentures are applied. Some patients need a few months for the healing stage and others are ready sooner.
For some cases, your dentist’s first step is to take measurements and then fit your new dentures to your mouth before removing your teeth. The dentures are positioned immediately after teeth are extracted, which means no recovery period while you are without teeth. This kind of denture does necessitate follow-up visits so your dentist can make adjustments as your jaw, mouth and gums heal.
This is one possible solution for those patients who don’t require a complete removal of their teeth. Like a denture, a partial denture is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.
Whichever method is right for you, it will take some time and patience to get accustomed to your new dentures. Over time, you will grow more and more comfortable speaking and eating. You’ll also feel a restored feeling of confidence thanks to a new, healthier-looking smile and appearance.

Your dentures may take some time to get used to. The flesh colored base of the dentures is placed over your gums. Some people say that it feels bulky or that they don’t have enough room for their tongue. Other times the dentures might feel loose. These feelings will affect the way you eat and talk for a little while. Over time, your mouth becomes trained to eat and speak with your dentures and they begin to feel more and more like your natural teeth. They may never feel perfectly comfortable, but it is much better than the alternative of not having teeth.

Caring For Your New Dentures

Dentures should be cleaned and cared for just as if they were your natural teeth. Brush regularly using a recommended toothpaste to prevent plaque build-up or stains. After cleaning, remove your dentures and then carefully put them into a glass of denture cleaning solution or room temperature water. Don’t use hot water since it can create a risk of warping. If your dentures become loose, uncomfortable or ineffective, contact your dentist. Do not try to make adjustments to your dentures on your own.

Getting Accustomed To Your New Dentures

Just like with other dental procedures, it will take some time and patience to get accustomed to your denture. For the majority of patients the process is relatively brief. Try to stay on softer foods and consume plenty of liquids for a couple of days after getting your bridge. Soon you can resume your normal diet without difficulty.
