Making a Transition to Dentures

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

The latest options for dentures are truly amazing in their ability to transform the smiles of those plagued by serious dental problems. However, there are many who wonder whether or not they could make a successful transition to wearing them on a daily basis. While there is definitely an adjustment period that all denture wearers must undergo, the truth is that with a few useful pointers in mind and consistent contact with skilled dentists, the transition can be quite seamless.

Talking normally with a new set of affordable quality dentures is something that many find to be a bit of 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 may be in order. The excess saliva production that many new denture wearers report is also something that will resolve naturally.

Eating while wearing dentures also can initially pose a bit of a challenge. For that reason, a diet made primarily of soft foods is ideal at first. Paying attention to 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.

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.

Proper dental care and maintenance of dentures 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.
