Great Advice For Denture Wearers

Dentures can be tough to adjust to for first-time denture users. Having said that, there are a few points to keep in mind: Eat smaller amounts of softer foods that have been sliced into bite-size pieces and chewed with both sides of your mouth at the same time. Once you’ve mastered it, you’ll be able to eat practically all of the foods you used to eat with your natural teeth. Premier Choice Dental & Oral Surgery Center – Belgrade is an excellent resource for this.

Remember that the whole denture will move around in your mouth due to the gums beneath it, and this will be exacerbated if you try to eat exclusively on one side of the denture or only on the front teeth. This is not because the denture is ill-fitting, but rather because the principles of physics are at work. When dentures are held in place by clasps/teeth or implants, there is usually very little movement, if any at all. If your denture causes soreness or ulceration, your dentist will adjust it for you; therefore, it is critical that you see your dentist if this happens. Like a new pair of shoes, most dentures will irritate your mouth, so a denture ‘ease’ will be ordered.

S, F, and Th sounds, in particular, can be altered when speaking. Most people adjust to the changes quickly by repeating the difficult words/sounds.

Extreme facial movements, such as shouting or laughing, might cause the dentures to move about in the mouth. If the movement is caused by slight facial movements, the dentist may need to modify the denture’s flanges (the parts of the denture that rest on the cheeks).

A denture fixative may be recommended by your dentist in some instances. This is mainly due to a reduction in the existing bone and gums that support the denture, and is not a reflection of the denture that your dentist has designed to fit you.

Patients frequently wear their dentures throughout the day and at night while sleeping. Most dentists would advise against it because it is linked to the development of a fungal infection, which can damage the denture’s fit. However, your dentist may recommend that you wear your new denture at night for the first week or so to aid in the healing of any extraction sockets and to speed up the process of patient acceptance and adjustment to the new denture.

If you have a partial denture, you must brush effectively with fluoride toothpaste, use interdental aids as advised by your dentist, and take care of your denture as well. To prevent the denture from shattering if it is dropped, it should always be washed over a basin of water. To avoid harming the denture(s), a special denture brush and paste should be used. Plaque and food deposits must be removed from every surface of the denture. To avoid drying out, the dentures should be inserted in the mouth in the morning or maintained in a suitable container with water before going to night. Denture cleansers should be used according to the manufacturer’s recommendations if they are utilised.
