A mature woman after dental restoration treatment sitting in a dental chair and looking at her prefect new smile in a mirror.

You’ve been looking forward to visiting that new restaurant downtown. It’s impossible to get in without a reservation, and the day after you got your dentures you booked a table three weeks out.

But you’ve noticed over the past few weeks, your food just doesn’t taste the same. There are bitter and sour notes with foods you used to love, and meat just doesn’t have much flavor at all. So, while you’re still excited about your evening out, you’re also concerned that you won’t taste anything.

It’s Not Just the Dentures

As you age, all of your senses may begin to lose a little focus. You probably notice it with your sight and hearing most of all, but your sense of smell, taste, and even touch can also become a little dull.

With that said, if your taste was pretty clear before your dentures, it could be a problem with the fit. Before you make your appointment to come in for a consultation, check these issues:

  • Daily Cleaning: You should be cleaning your dentures on a daily basis: Rinsing, brushing, soaking, and rinsing again after the overnight soak.
  • Use less denture cream. Many patients feel the need to go a little overboard on the adhesive. Scale back, use the minimum amount and work your way up from there to find a comfortable fit.

At Georgia Denture and Implant Specialist we can help you get a great fit on your dentures. But if you find yourself losing the taste of your favorite foods, we can also help you get a good fit or stabilized denture with dental implants! Contact our Woodstock office to schedule your appointment!

What your patients are saying

Dr Berne and his team are the best; professional, friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They made an uneasy process for me go very smooth. I’m so happy with my beautiful smile that his skilled hands gave me, and would recommend him to anyone looking to restore their smile too!!!

The whole staff was so nice and treated me like family. Dr Anderson and his assistant were both so funny and I felt so comfortable and like I’d known them for years. Dr Anderson and his staff are the best ever! I would highly recommend them!

The office is very friendly and very professional. My dentist is Dr. Doug Yoon and on my very first visit he introduced me to the entire staff that would be assisting with my care, which made me feel confident that I had chosen the right practice. It has only gone uphill from there. I love that place!!
