Dentures & Partials

At first, your dentist may recommend that you wear your dentures to sleep. This will speed up your mouth’s adjustment to the dentures and allow you to quickly detect and correct any spots where the fit is uncomfortable. After your mouth has adjusted to the dentures, they may be worn throughout the day and removed while you sleep. Be sure to place them in water or denture cleanser. Allowing them to dry out will distort them.

Dentures do require some adjustment to how you normally eat. Cutting crunchy foods into smaller bite-sized pieces will make it easier to chew. You should exercise caution with your dentures because they can break if you bite unexpectedly into something hard.

It will take your mouth some time to get used to the feel of dentures.

After a few weeks, however, you will feel comfortable eating and talking with your dentures in and experience little to no soreness or discomfort. If you ever do experience soreness or your dentures aren’t fitting right, please let us know so we can adjust them properly.
