New Dentures – What You Need To Know About Them

| 13/04/2012

New dentures can be required by people because of advancing age or because of some unfortunate accident which has resulted in the loss of teeth. Dentures can be either partial or total. Getting the right kind of dentures and then getting used to them may take some time and effort but it need not be a cumbersome or anxiety ridden experience.

Getting the Perfect Fitting Dentures

  • Using the services of a will help immensely while getting a new set of  dentures. Such a professional will first make a thorough dental assessment and then tailor make dentures meant for an individual. There is no one size fits all here and therefore a professional dental prosthetist is highly recommended.
  • New dentures technology has resulted in making dentures that look perfectly natural and it is essential for an individual to choose such new technology too. No longer will such dentures look like patently false teeth.
  • There is a wide variety of materials that are used to make dentures and these are porcelain (which may look the most realistic), acrylic resins and new and lightweight plastics too.
  • New dentures need a bit of care and attention. It would be good to brush them every day, much like normal teeth and if this is not possible then soak them in a good quality dental cleanser.

Points to Remember when Wearing New Dentures

New dentures will need a bit of getting used to. Here are a few things that can be done to enhance adaptation to denture:

  • They can be “broken in” quicker by placing them in one’s mouth and talking aloud in the privacy of one’s home without fear of embarrassment. Use the time at home to speak a few words with the “s” letter in them. For instance, number like “sixty” or saying “Shakespeare” can be practiced.
  • Initially, there might be a bit of discomfort and the gums may hurt. In this event, it is advised to them take off the new dentures and gently massage the gums. One must see the dental prosthetist in case there are ulcers and painful chafing.

New dentures can be a great way to regain or augment the use of one’s teeth for everyday activities. Even if dentures are being used to retain the face’s shape after some sort of an accident, it can boost one’s confidence and life can be pretty much normal too.
