Have you gotten dentures recently, or are you thinking about getting dentures soon? While dentures are extremely beneficial in the aesthetic and functional qualities that they return to your teeth, they can sometimes be a challenge to adjust to. The experts at our Hartford dentist office
, Contemporary General Dentistry, have provided many patients with dentures, as well as the tips and tools they need to get through the general period of adjustment that most patients face when dealing with dentures. Within the first day or two that you begin wearing your dentures, you may notice the highest level of discomfort. You may notice that your mouth is producing excess saliva, or you may even find yourself gagging as a result of your dentures. Know that these symptoms typically fade very quickly.

Once you have gotten past those additional adjustments, there are just some small changes to your daily life that you need to be aware of and get used to while wearing your dentures. For most patients, chewing food becomes one of the largest challenges. To make it easier for you in the beginning, cut your food up into small bites, and try to eat mostly soft foods until you get a better feel for chewing with your dentures. You might also find it hard to speak normally. To get better used to speaking, try practicing when you are alone, and speak slowly and in a soft voice to make it easier. You will also need to get used to cleaning and maintaining your dentures. The specialists at our Hartford dentist office
will give you all the information and instructions you need to keep your dentures in the best condition possible. We are also always here to answer any questions you might have along the way.
