It’s normal for it to take some time to get used to a new set of dentures, especially if this is the first time you’ve had dentures. The fastest way to acclimate to your dentures is to wear them all the time. Re-learning to chew can be particularly difficult.
In order to ease into the new sensation, we recommend our patients start out with soft foods, try not to favour chewing one side over the other, chew food on both sides at the same time and don’t bite into hard foods with your front teeth.
Common symptoms that patients may experience while adjusting to new dentures include: excessive production of saliva, an overcrowded or bulky feeling, slurred speech or reduced taste. Generally, these symptoms will subside with time as you get used to your new dental prosthetics. However, if any of your symptoms are particularly acute or bothersome, please don’t hesitate to contact Crown Dental Group.
It is important to make sure your dentures are the right size and fit. Your dentists may recommend a resizing or realigning which will make dentures more comfortable and less likely to injure your gums. Ask your dentist about different types of dentures made of different materials to provide a wide range of benefits.
Dentures are kept in place by their fit however because the gum shape and size may change there are some products that act as an adhesive to keep dentures in place. It is important to discuss ill-fitting dentures with your dentist before making any adjustments to the appliance yourself as this may lead to denture breakage or injuring yourself.
The shape of your gum line changes as your gums heal after tooth loss. Well-fitting dentures are built based on the healed shape and size of your gums which may take time. Immediate dentures can serve as a temporary measure after a tooth has been extracted, allowing enough time for your gums to heal, and while you wait for your permanent denture.
At Crown Dental Group we have a dedicated dental lab on-site which means you don’t have to wait the usual turn-around time for your denture appliance. Our dental technicians can start working on your denture as soon as it is prescribed.
Patients often think that they can clean their dentures as they would their natural teeth. This is a big mistake! Dentures are made of a different material that requires specialised, gentle care.
