Getting a set of dentures can be the dawn of a new era in your life. With your brand new dentures, you can regain your confidence with your perfect smile. However, this new confidence comes with an adjustment period. These new dentures are not your natural teeth, and they can take a few weeks to begin to feel natural.
In the beginning, your new dentures can feel a bit strange in your mouth. You will need to give your mouth time to adjust to them. You may experience these symptoms when you first wear your dentures.
These symptoms should be temporary. If they persist for more than a week or two after you start wearing your new dentures, contact your dentist. There could be an issue with the fit of your dentures, and you may need an adjustment to guarantee that your mouth is as comfortable as possible.
Everything changes once you get new dentures. Eating and speaking are now different than they used to be with your natural teeth. Learning how to live with your new dentures might take a bit of time, but it will soon be second nature to you.
Whether you are planning to get dentures or you have recently acquired dentures, keep in mind that these issues are incredibly temporary. In just a few weeks, you probably will not think about the awkwardness you felt in the first few days of wearing dentures. Keep in mind that if you have any problems that do not resolve themselves after the initial adjustment period, you can always contact us at McBride Dental. We will make adjustments to help your mouth feel more comfortable and let your smile shine through!
