Tips for Wearing Dentures

Receiving your new teeth can be a fantastic improvement to the way you were living before your dentures. Most of our patients are ecstatic with their new look, but it doesn’t take long to realize that dentures require a little bit of extra attention. We’ve put together a list of things you should know about making the switch from your natural teeth to a complete denture solution.

1) Fit is Very Important
The way your dentures fit will greatly affect the likelihood of success for your switch to dentures. Fit affects stability and comfort as well as your confidence level. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you are unsure about your fit!

2) Take Time to Learn
Learning to use dentures is just like learning any other new skill. It takes practice and there is a learning curve. Your muscles need to learn to work in a new way to create a well-functioning
set of teeth!

3) Implants Can Make a Difference
If you are unhappy with the fit and function of your dentures, there are other options available for you. Dental implants can add a great deal of stability and comfort. One procedure will make an immediate improvement for your chewing ability!
