They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so just how much is your smile worth? Losing your teeth can negatively affect the way you interact with people, your ability to eat, and even your appearance. You need an effective solution to lost or missing teeth, and dentures are one option that comes highly recommended. And denture cost Unlike models of the past, today’s denture options offer greater form and function, meaning no one even has to know that you are wearing dentures. Denture cost is affordable, so ask your dentist if they are the right solution for you.

With simple tips for adjusting to life with dentures, you can restore your smile and all that it’s worth. When you get your first pair of dentures, you may have to endure an adjustment period in which you re-learn how to eat, drink, and speak with the appliance in place. You will also need to be aware of the steps necessary to keep your gums healthy, so your denture set remains an effective replacement of your natural teeth.

Use these tips to successfully adjust to life with dentures:

How do I eat with dentures?

Eating with your dentures is a learned process. You should begin with soft foods, such as eggs or yogurt. Teach yourself to chew with the food distributed evenly on either side of the mouth to keep the dentures in perfect position. Sticky and hard-to-chew foods should be avoided as they can cause damage to the denture. After an adjustment period, you can slowly begin to integrate more solid foods into your diet. However, you will always need to take small bites and eat slowly to prevent any denture issues.

How do I speak with dentures?

Before you begin engaging in the social scene with your new dentures, take some time to learn how to speak with your dentures in place. Certain words may become difficult to say. Spend time in front of a mirror observing your speech patterns and practicing keeping your dentures in place as you move your tongue and mouth. Grandiose gestures of the mouth, like laughing and yawning, may cause the dentures to become dislodged until you become comfortable with denture wear.

Can dentures be worn all day?

Dentures may be worn all day, but should be removed each night to protect the other tissues of the mouth. For the first few days, you will need to wear your dentures around the clock—including to bed to determine comfort and need for denture adjustment.

How do I clean my dentures?

Dentures must be carefully stored each night and cleaned daily. Just like your real teeth, your dentures need daily care and attention to remain effective. Use a soft toothbrush to clean your dentures and always rinse your mouth with a mouthwash to clean and protect the tissues of the mouth.
