Getting Comfortable with Your Dentures

Posted .

If you are in the market for dentures, you know of their benefits. They make good tools that replace teeth you have lost. So that you do not feel like something is going wrong during your first few weeks of having a new denture, understand that it will take some time to grow accustomed to them.

They will feel strange for a while. They may also cause a number of small reactions from your body, but they are nothing to worry about. These feelings and reactions should go away as you grow accustomed to your dentures. We will explain what you may feel so you know what to expect.

The dentures may feel like they do not fit, or they may feel bulky. Your tongue may also feel like it has no room. Once your cheek and tongue get used to the dentures and learn to support them, these feelings should go away.

Your saliva may increase somewhat. This should also go away as your mouth gets used to having the dentures around.

Some irritation and soreness often appear as well. Any discomfort from either should be small. After a few weeks pass, the irritation and soreness should vanish, and you should feel comfortable with your dentures.

However, if you do feel a lot of discomfort, and it persist for longer than a few weeks, do not hesitate to visit our dentists, Drs. Scrimalli, Ratchford and Ahmadzadeh, for help. They will try to resolve the issue so you can be comfortable again.
