Dentures can help address a number of issues that cause patients pain, discomfort, or embarrassment. They are an excellent option to boost your quality of life, including filling out your face, enabling clear speaking, helping you eat more normally, and giving you back your smile.
Dentures come with the added advantage of being removable for comfort and maintenance. With dentures, you will still want to practice good oral hygiene habits. Brush your mouth, gums, tongue, and any remaining teeth every day to reduce odor-causing bacteria. Be sure to brush your dentures, themselves, too — this practice can also help with odor and combat staining of your dentures.
Dentures can be made to mimic the smile you used to have, meaning that they will provide a natural transition that most people won’t even notice. We can fully customize every tooth to reproduce your smile as naturally as possible — right down to the color.
What can I expect when I begin using dentures?
Dentures are an effective solution for a number of people, but they do take some getting used to. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself producing more saliva than usual as your mouth becomes accustomed to your new dental appliance. Sometimes, you might feel like your dentures are too loose in your mouth. In reality, it just takes a small adjustment period for your mouth’s muscles to figure out how to work to keep the dentures in place. Give it a little time and patience — you’ll soon find a secure and comfortable fit that will help you enjoy your smile again. If you continue to have issues about the fit and comfort of your dentures, don’t hesitate to reach out. We want to make sure you’re happy and at ease with your dentures.
