Solving the Mystery of Dentures

Posted .

Would you like to know all of the details about dentures? If so, we are happy to help you! By knowing the specifics about dentures, you can make an educated and informed decision on whether or not dentures are the right solution for you. So, to help you solve the mystery of dentures, we have provided the answers to the following questions:

What is the difference between complete and partial dentures?
A complete denture is meant to replace all of your teeth while a partial denture only replaces a few of your teeth. A complete denture is suctioned to the roof of your mouth and it fills your smile with beautiful, white chompers. A partial denture is placed into the gap of your smile and it is clasped to the remaining natural teeth that lie on both sides of the gap.

What do dentures feel like?
Your denture might feel a little odd at first, but that’s only because your mouth is not used to it. You might also feel a little irritated and sore, but once your cheeks and tongue get used to the appliance, everything will feel natural and right.

How will dentures make me feel?
Dentures will make you feel natural and beautiful again. However, they might be a little frustrating at first. When you start wearing the appliance, chewing and speaking could be a bit difficult. If this is the case, all you need to do is eat small, soft foods and read and speak out loud. With some practice, you will be a professional denture wearer in no time.

How often would I wear dentures?
When you first start wearing the denture, we will recommend that you wear it around the clock, even while you are sleeping. After adjustments are made and after your mouth becomes used to the appliance, you will only need to wear the denture during the day.
