5 Things Everyone With Dentures Should Know

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth or lost teeth. If you want to gain confidence again while smiling, you can go for denture placement as it is very simple and an inexpensive solution. Wearing a denture makes your teeth look natural, and helps you with biting and chewing your food.

Dr. Benjamin J. Gubernick from Flex Dental at Tampa, Florida, offers a range of dental services with a competent team supporting him. 

In this article, let’s explore the things that every person with dentures should know. 

  • Clean Your Denture Regularly

Dentures also require maintenance like your natural teeth. You have to brush at least twice a day. You must use a specially designed brush for cleaning your dentures. They do not normally stain like normal teeth but they may lose their spark. 

  • Don’t Wear Removable Dentures While Sleeping

The dentures may feel quite comfortable after a while but you need to remember that dentures are not your natural teeth. You may develop sore gums if you wear them all night. This is because they constantly add pressure on your jawbone and gums. 

  • Practice Speaking with Denture

Do not feel shy while speaking with dentures. It may take a while to get comfortable wearing them. You may pronounce a few words differently, however, keep practising and soon it will get easier. Even with food, have soft foods in the initial period.

  • Understand That the Discomfort is Temporary 

Wearing dentures leads to discomfort in the initial days. This is because your natural teeth are being replaced with dentures. There are nerves on the teeth that are connected directly to the brain. When dentures are placed inside the mouth, there is no longer any connection, and it takes time to get adjusted with such dentures. So, worry not. This discomfort is only temporary.

  • Repairing of Denture

Dentures are made up of acrylic and dental grade ceramic. So, in case your dentures break or chips, it can be repaired easily. All you have to do is get in touch with your dentist. The dentist will replace the damaged tooth with a new one and it will be as good as new.
