How to Make a Smooth Transition to Permanent Dentures

dca-blog_dentures-mature-woman-apple

Dentures these days have come a long way from the awkward false teeth you may remember your grandparents wearing. These days, dentures serve as a virtually undetectable method of solving many dental problems, and people everywhere are realizing that they are a very viable option. While there is no doubt that denture wear does require an adjustment period, following a few simple tips and working with an affordable dentist can make the transition easy indeed.

If you are a new denture wearer, you will probably want to stick to a diet of softer food items initially, taking care to chew equally on both sides of your mouth. You will find that eating successfully does take a bit of practice at first, but gradually, you will be able to introduce a wider variety of foods. Excessively chewy and sticky foods should be limited, however. As the tongue and cheeks become acclimated to the dentures over time, they will help to keep the dentures in place.

Speaking naturally is not necessarily going to be simple at first, but it will not be long before you begin to feel comfortable. It is not uncommon for things such as yawning or laughing to cause your dentures to come loose, and if it happens often, you may need to have some professional adjustments made. 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.

Dentures are typically worn throughout the day and removed at night to allow sensitive mouth tissues to rest. However, during the first few days as a denture wearer, it is important that you wear them around the clock in order to determine whether any adjustments are necessary.

When it comes to caring for your dentures, proper cleaning and maintenance are essential. When not in use, dentures should be soaked either in water or in a denture cleaning solution formulated for that very purpose. Dentures must never be put into hot water, as they can easily warp or suffer serious damage. They also need to be cleaned each day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, water and soap. Rinsing your mouth when your dentures are not in place is necessary to remove plaque and reduce infection risk.
