Getting Used to Your New Dentures

Complete Dentures in Woodstock GATeeth may seem like teeth, but when a person has had some, or all, of their teeth removed and are now replaced with dentures they have an adjustment process to go through. Doing anything for the first time can be challenging, but putting a foreign object in the mouth that is supposed to take the place of natural teeth is something that will take time to get used to. At Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists, we take every necessary step to help our patients find the most comfortable fit with their new dentures. We have fabricated thousands of dentures for patients over the years, and we are experienced and sensitive to issues that our patients may face as they adjust to wearing new dentures.

Getting used to new dentures will take some mind power. We have found that our patients who come in willing to worth through the adjustment period knowing that the results will be a completely restored smile, do must better adjusting to their new dentures. The process will take time and patience, as dentures will feel strange and bulky at first. The felling of fullness of the lips and cheeks will subside as wearers become used to their new teeth, and the right attitude will make the entire time frame go by much faster. Dentures may also require some patients to work on their speech a bit as slurring words are a common issue at the beginning of denture wearing. Learning to chew with dentures also takes some adjustment. However, speaking and eating are natural occurrences in life, and most patients with willing attitudes find that the entire time frame goes by rather quickly.

At Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists, we are here to partner with you every step of the way when it comes to receiving dentures. We are committed to a custom strategy that emphasizes personalized attention to each of our patients, because we understand that there is no “one size fits all” denture. If you are interested in the highest quality denture care in Georgia, contact Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists today to schedule a consultation appointment. We look forward to helping you bring back your smile.
