You and Your New Dentures – Tips for Easing the Transition

dca-blog-525-Dentures_1200x630

Your teeth are an important element of your self-image, and they enable you to talk and chew normally. Missing teeth compromise your quality of life, and although you want to replace them, finding out you need partial or full dentures can cause uncertainty and worry. You’re not alone in your transition. Many adults over 40 years of age obtain partial or full dentures after tooth loss. Dentures look so natural, you may not even be aware that many of your friends have them. Once you are used to wearing them, affordable quality dentures can improve your life in many ways. Here are a few useful tips to ease your anxiety, and help you adjust to your new affordable quality dentures.

Common Problems New Denture Wearers May Have to Face

  • Speaking with dentures in place can seem awkward at first, and some words may be hard to pronounce. With practice, it will get easier. Read out loud when you are alone, and repeat problem words until you feel more confident. If you experience denture clicking while talking, speak slowly.
  • Full or partial dentures may feel loose or awkward in your mouth until you get accustomed to them. The muscles in your tongue and cheek must learn to keep the appliance in place; this process will occur naturally over time. During the adjustment period, using a small amount of denture adhesive can help stabilize your dentures, as well as help to prevent embarrassing accidents.
  • Your affordable quality dentures may shift or slip when you cough, laugh, or smile. You can reposition them discreetly by biting down gently and swallowing. If the problem occurs frequently or makes you feel self-conscious, use denture adhesive to prevent slips.

Have Questions about your Full or Partial Dentures? Don’t Hesitate to Ask

Your dentist or prosthodontist is there to help you adjust to life with your new dentures. If you continue to experience discomfort or problems with eating, speaking, or denture maintenance, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Your full or partial dentures are designed to improve your quality of life, and your dental team will be happy to make sure that they do.
