- September 5, 2014
Entering a new stage of life is always interesting with new things to learn and experiences to be had. If you’re at a stage in life that requires a switch to dentures, you are probably learning that there are definitely things to be learned! We have some ideas of things that all new denture wearers should consider as they make this life change.
New Dentures Take Time
Before you can expect your dentures to be completely functional, you need to train your mouth to use the dentures well. Muscles have a new use, and it takes time to learn. Don’t get discouraged if things aren’t going as well as you’d like at first, just give yourself some time!
A Comfortable Fit Is Paramount
From the first moment you put the dentures in, you should pay close attention to the fit of your dentures. As time goes on, your jaw will change shape, requiring you to adjust the fit regularly. The fit of your dentures determines the success of your dentures, so check often!
Implants Can Change Things
If you are unhappy with the fit of your dentures, there are always other options for the security of your smile. Dental implants can secure your slippery dentures and give you a fully functional and comfortable smile.
Settling into life with dentures takes time and paying attention to the details of your denture fit. With an idea of what to expect, you can expect a successful denture experience.
