Dentures Aftercare

Dentures Aftercaredentures aftercare

Having dentures can make a huge difference in your life and how you live it. This method of restorative dentistry can replace some of your teeth or all of them, which will give you the confidence you need to smile once more and to eat the foods that you enjoy. Getting dentures is an exciting time, but you need to know what you should expect and the proper dentures aftercare.

Getting Used to the Dentures

One of the biggest challenges that people face when it comes to dentures aftercare is simply getting accustomed to having the dentures in their mouth in the first place. In the beginning, it will feel strange and there will be a “settling in” period. This could take a few days or a few weeks for some people.

During this period, the dentist may ask you to wear the dentures for 24 full hours after receiving them. This will allow you to determine whether they fit properly or if they are creating sore spots in the mouth. Then, you can talk with your dentures specialist about getting them adjusted.

When you first have the dentures, you will notice that it can be somewhat difficult to eat and to talk. In time, you will get used to the dentures, so do not worry.

Clean the Dentures

You also need to take good care of the dentures. Even though they might not be your natural teeth, you still need to keep them clean. You can brush and clean them with regular toothpaste, or you could use a denture cleaner if you prefer. If there are any special instructions for your dentures, your specialist will let you know.

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
