Loving Life with Dentures

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

Though modern, well-fitting dentures can be a godsend when it comes to addressing a broad array of serious dental issues, many people still feel hesitant about what life with dentures would really be like. New denture wearers will undoubtedly experience a period of adjustment during which they will get accustomed to the new sensations and maintenance requirements their appliances bring, but the end result is truly worthwhile. By using the tips below and consulting as needed with affordable dentists in Tampa, anyone can quickly get up to speed on living happily with dentures.

Enjoying food while wearing dentures can initially pose a bit of a challenge. For that reason, a diet made primarily of soft foods is ideal at first. Paying attention to chewing evenly on both sides of the mouth is recommended, as is steering clear of foods that are unusually sticky. But, in a short amount of time, the tongue and the cheeks will begin to naturally work at keeping dentures precisely where they ought to be.

Speaking normally with a new set of affordable quality dentures is also something that many find to be a bit of a challenge. However, it does not take a great deal of time before natural enunciation and word formation returns. As with most things, practice makes perfect! Yawns and laughs can occasionally force the dentures to slip out of place, but if this is a common occurrence, professional adjustments by your dentist may be in order. The excess saliva production that many new denture wearers report is also something that will resolve naturally.

While dentures are typically worn just during waking hours, during the initial few days of use, they should be worn when sleeping as well. Continued wear will provide a useful opportunity to identify areas of needed adjustment, which can make the transition period much shorter than it otherwise might be.

Maintenance of dentures and proper dental care must never be overlooked. When not in use, dentures need to soak in water or in a denture cleaning solution. It is important that hot water never be used for denture soaking, as it can cause warping or other damage. A soft toothbrush should also be used daily to clean the dentures and the mouth and gums should be rinsed to remove plaque and lower the risk of infection.
