Do I Really Need to Clean My Dentures Daily?
Your new dentures must be cared for and checked regularly, along with any remaining natural teeth. You’ll need to see a dentist at least every six months to review your dental implants and overall oral health.
To help you get used to your new dentures, take a look at our expert advice for patients below.
As well as making the inside your mouth feel different, complete dentures will make your face look different too. By providing essential support to your facial muscles and features, correctly fitted dentures should make you appear younger.
Where your new dentures replace any front teeth, you may feel the new denture is too far forward or as though your lips are too thick. Don’t worry – your dentures have been positioned where your natural teeth once were, and the feeling will soon disappear.
Same Day Teeth Patient
Many people find their speech is affected while their tongue and lips get used to the new shape of dentures. To speed up speech adjustment, try reading aloud or counting from 65 to 70.
It’s also common to salivate more, which can affect speech. Sipping water often helps thin down saliva, and you’ll also improve speech by simply swallowing more often.Book a consultation
Returning your jaw to its natural position may affect your chewing and biting ability in the short-term, but it won’t be long before things improve. In the beginning, you should avoid tough, hard and sticky foods. Take smaller bites while you get used to your new jaw and tooth position. Try to chew on both sides of your mouth at the same time, using up and down motions instead of side to side.Book a consultation
While it is up to you when you wear your dentures and how long you wear them for, we recommend you remove them while you sleep to give your gums a break. If you’d prefer not to, then removing your dentures in private – even for a short while – allows your mouth to rest.Book a consultation
While we design your dentures to be as comfortable as possible, it is not uncommon to develop pressure points and sore spots while your mouth and gums adjust. By making small alterations to the denture surface, we can bring added comfort to your dentures and you’re entirely happy with the fit.Book a consultation
