Adjusting to new dentures can be difficult, no matter if the patient is getting partial or full dentures. There are several reasons why adjusting to dentures can take time, but it will be worth it when an individual is able to smile using a full set of teeth. With dentures, a patient will gain both the natural appearance and functionality of teeth again.

Losing permanent adult teeth can be a problem that occurs with age and poor dental hygiene. Poor dental hygiene seems to accelerate the process of infection spreading and teeth falling out. If the infection spreads to multiple teeth or the entire mouth, then a professional will need to remove the teeth to prevent the infection from spreading and causing greater amounts of pain. Once we remove the infection, we can then insert the dentures.

Adjusting to wearing new dentures can also include a new dental hygiene routine at home. Patients will also need some time to practice speaking with the dentures. Surprisingly, people may find this more difficult than they believe since it is difficult to suddenly change one’s routine. However, the benefits of wearing dentures will be worth the changes one has to make.

The dentures themselves will feel slightly uncomfortable for the first few weeks. However, patients will adjust to the dentures with time. Patients will be able to invest in natural-looking dentures and feel confident in their smile.

There are multiple types of dentures for a patient to choose. Depending on the current state of the patient’s oral health, we may recommend a specific type of dentures for the patient. We will customize each patient’s dentures to their teeth for a perfect fit. Therefore, patients will not have to worry about issues with the size of the dentures.

Conventional complete dentures are one type of denture that we will place in the mouth without any teeth or after we remove the last few. These are the most common form of dentures that people will wear. They consist of two separate rows for the upper and lower teeth.

Implant-supported dentures attach the dentures to metal posts in the jaw to remain in place. These types of dentures will not need removal for cleaning. However, not all patients will be able to wear implant supported dentures. We will determine the best choice for the patient during an examination.

Regardless of the type of dentures, there are multiple health benefits to wearing dentures.
