Learning to Live Happily with Dentures

A well-fitting set of permanent dentures can do great things for your appearance and overall sense of confidence. Not only that, modern dentures are so well made that they can go undetected by just about everyone you meet. While dentures can solve a whole host of dental issues, there is a learning curve that new denture wearers must go through. Fortunately, by applying a few key pieces of advice and being monitored by an affordable dentist in Stockbridge, adjusting to denture wear can be much easier than you may have thought.

If you are just starting out with dentures, you are sure to find that speaking is something that requires practice at first, but will begin to feel quite natural in time. Laughing and yawning may sometimes cause the dentures to dislodge, and this can be an indication that professional adjustments may be required. It is also important to note that your dentures may cause an increase in saliva production initially, but this will normalize before you know it.

Eating comfortably also takes a bit of practice at first. You will likely need to stick to a diet of softer food items initially, taking care to chew on both sides equally. Gradually, you will be able to introduce a wider variety of food textures without issue. Sticky and excessively chewy foods ought to be limited, however. In time, as the tongue and cheeks become acclimated to the dentures, they will serve to help keep the dentures where they need to be.

Generally speaking, dentures are worn all day long, but then removed at night in order to facilitate healing of oral tissues that may be irritated. But, for at least the first few days of wearing new dentures, it is necessary to wear them morning, noon and night in order to see whether or not you need to have adjustments made.

Proper cleaning and maintenance are essential when it comes to caring for your dentures. When not being worn, dentures should soak either in water or in a special denture cleaning solution. They must not be put into hot water, as they can easily warp or suffer serious damage. Dentures also need to be brushed each day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, water, and soap. Rinsing the mouth itself when the dentures are not in place is also important to remove plaque and reduce the risk of infection.
