Adjusting to Your New Denture

If you’re just getting dentures for the first time, being prepared is the first step. The first bit of time after wearing a new denture is usually a “break-in” period where you adjust to them as you go throughout your day. Even if you’re wearing a set of overdentures (implant stabilized dentures) you may need a short bit of time to adjust.

How to Get the Best Denture Fit

A quality denture will fit like your favorite pair of shoes. They’re comfortable, don’t rub you the wrong way, and you almost forget that they’re there. But without the right denture fit, the entire opposite can be true.

Four Ways to Ruin a Denture

Your new denture can last for several years. The key is to care for it properly on a daily basis. But dentures aren’t invincible. They need to be handled carefully and cleaned in a certain manner to ensure they hold up to everything life has to throw your way.

Daily Maintenance for Your Removable Denture

Removable full and partial dentures need special attention each day to ensure they last as intended. Without daily maintenance, your appliance can develop buildup or contribute to infections inside of your mouth. Thankfully, the right attention can help protect your prosthesis for years.

Alternatives to Dental Implants

People with missing teeth only have a few options when it comes to restoring their smiles. Some people prefer not to do anything. They get by with the teeth they still have. The problem with this scenario is that your remaining teeth are having to work harder than they’re supposed to, leading to premature wear and side-effects like TMJ pain.

Does it Hurt to Get Dental Implants?

If you were to look at a picture of dental implant designs, you might be surprised to learn that they’re one of the least-invasive types of dental therapies available. The apparently rigid surface of the artificial “root” initially seems as if implants might require less than desirable process to install into the bone. Surprisingly, that’s not the case. Getting dental implants can actually be quite comfortable and straightforward!
