What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable appliances that are designed to replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. They are custom-made and can be partial or full dentures, depends on what you need and how many missing teeth you have. If you are missing all of your teeth, a full denture is ideal for you.

Dentures for First Time Wearers

It may think a little bit of time to get used to your new dentures. Eating with your dentures in place may require some practice so it is best to start with soft foods. You can then slowly introduce solid food to your diet until you get used to wearing it when eating. Sticky or chewy foods should be avoided.

When It’s Time to Remove Your Dentures

After you have your dentures fitted, your dentist or prosthodontist will give you instructions on how to properly care for your dentures and the habits you should avoid preventing them from being damaged and when to remove them. During the first couple of days, you may be asked to wear your dentures all the time including while you sleep. This may be temporarily uncomfortable for you, but it is the quickest way to determine the areas on the denture that may need adjustment.

Removing them will allow gum tissues to rest and breathe and allows normal stimulation and cleansing by the tongue and saliva. Make sure to clean your mouth and your dentures before putting them back in the morning.
