Does it take a long time to get used to dentures?
Facing tooth loss can be an emotional experience, and many people opt for dentures, which is an economical way to replace missing teeth. And with today’s modern dentures, you can have a natural-looking smile that functions as good as it looks. Dentures today look better and are more comfortable than the dentures your grandparents had sitting at the bedside table in a glass of water.
Getting Used to Dentures
When you first get dentures, you will find that there is a learning curve that comes along with getting used to them. Most patients start out eating soft foods, gradually adding more of their favourite foods as they grow accustomed to chewing with dentures.
Speaking normally can be tricky when you first get dentures, but with practice, denture wearers will find that they can speak the way they did when they had a full mouth of teeth. For those who had been living with missing teeth for a while, they will also notice improvements in speaking.
You don’t have to live with missing teeth. We invite you to talk to the friendly team at our Bayside dental clinic to find out more about how modern dentures can improve your quality of life by giving you back your smile.
