4 Tips for New Denture Wearers

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

Today’s dentures are quite different from the ill-fitting, clunky appliances of decades past. The fact is that modern, affordable quality dentures have the ability to resolve troubling dental issues that many patients may have thought insurmountable. Though there is no denying the fact that there will be an adjustment period for those just starting out with dentures, with the help of a few simple tips, it is possible to make the transition period surprisingly brief.

  1. Speaking with Dentures: Talking normally with a new set of affordable quality dentures is something that many find to be a challenge. However, it does not take a great deal of time before natural enunciation and word formation return. As with most things, practice makes perfect! Yawns and laughs can occasionally force the dentures to slip out of place, but if this is a common occurrence, professional adjustments by your dentist in Orlando may be in order. The excess saliva production that many new denture wearers report is also something that will resolve naturally.
  2. Eating with Dentures: While wearing dentures can initially pose a bit of a challenge, a diet of soft foods is ideal at first. Chewing evenly on both sides of the mouth is recommended, as is avoiding foods that are unusually sticky. But, in a short amount of time, the tongue and the cheeks will begin to naturally work at keeping dentures precisely where they ought to be.
  3. Wearing Dentures: Dentures are typically worn just during waking hours, but during the initial few days of use, they should be worn when sleeping as well. Continued wear will provide a useful opportunity to identify areas of needed adjustment, which can make the transition period much shorter than it otherwise might be.
  4. Maintenance of Dentures: Proper dental care must never be overlooked. When not in use, dentures need to soak in water or in a denture cleaning solution. It is important that hot water never be used for denture soaking, as it can cause warping or other damage. A soft toothbrush should also be used daily to clean the dentures and the mouth and gums should be rinsed to remove plaque and lower the risk of infection.
