NEW TO DENTURES?
New denture users require time to get accustomed to their brand-new “teeth,” because even the best-fitting dentures will certainly feel unpleasant. To get accustomed to chewing with a brand-new denture, begin with soft, easy-to-chew foods.
How do you care for a denture?
- Denture adhesives may be recommended, especially for the newbie denture wearer. Adhesives could improve the retention and stability of dentures for those with minimal bone support or small ridges. Stability of the denture will assist the user’s self-confidence.
- take out the denture and clean it daily with a denture cleanser and a brush (one particularly created for cleaning dentures or a soft toothbrush).
- Stay clear of making use of boiling water to disinfect the denture, since hot water can cause the denture to lose its shape.
- If you wear a partial denture, take it out prior to brushing your natural teeth.
- When you’re not using the denture, soak it in denture cleanser or water.
- To prevent losing your denture, put it in a denture case in the same place all the time
Visit Your Denturist
With age, your mouth will remain to alter as the bone under your denture shrinks or recedes. To maintain a correct fit with time, it may be required to adjust your denture or potentially remake your denture. Never ever try to adjust a denture yourself, and do not use denture adhesives for an extended period because this can contribute to bone loss. When in doubt, consult your denturist.
Alternative to Dentures?
Implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Implants and bridges might resemble the “feel” of genuine teeth, however they do cost more than dentures.
