ARE DENTURES COMFORTABLE?

Dentures have always been a popular option for restoring missing teeth for patients of any age. However, many individuals struggle with the idea that dentures are not comfortable on their gums or don’t feel like their natural teeth. Distinctive Dental Care provides a wide range of restorative care that helps to restore missing teeth, including dentures. Continue reading on to learn if dentures are comfortable and how your smile can benefit from them.

It may take time for a new denture user to get properly accustomed to their new restorations. The adjustment period may vary between patients as some might struggle with learning how to chew and speak with dentures. After your teeth and gums adjust to the dentures, they will feel comfortable. Follow along for some helpful tips you can implement as a new denture user:

  • Use the right adhesive. Your dentist may recommend a specific brand of adhesive that will work best for your own set of dentures. A good adhesive should feel secure on your gums and not allow food to get stuck in between.
  • Caring for your dentures prevents discomfort. When you are not wearing your dentures, they should be stored properly. This typically involves immersing them in water and a cleaning solution. If you feel like your dentures are beginning to fit different, then tell your dentist right away.
  • Address unexpected pains right away. In the beginning, pain and discomfort may be normal. However, after you have grown to be accustomed to your dentures, the pain should stop. If you are experiencing pain, then this may be a sign that you are in need of a minor adjustment. Contact your dentist right away to get it resolved and correct any issues you might feel. Even a small adjustment can make the world of a difference.
