what to expect from new dentures calgary denture clinic

When you get your new dentures, remember: no two people are the same, so your experience may not be the same as someone else’s. If you’ve had dentures before, your new dentures may feel different than the ones you’ve had previously. So, what can you expect from your new dentures? See our top 3 points below:

(1) You must learn to manipulate your dentures. At first you may look, speak, and eat in a way that you’re unaccustomed to. But with time, you should adapt very readily. Most patients require about 2 – 3 weeks to learn to work with new dentures. A few patients may require more time. But don’t be discouraged if you take longer than most.

(2) You will find that dentures are not as efficient as your natural teeth when eating. However, having dentures is BETTER than being without teeth. When eating, start with soft foods and take small bites. Avoid biting with the front teeth because it will cause the dentures to become unstable and shift. This can lead to sore gums, which are common at the beginning. It is best to cut your foods into small bites, but if you must “take a bite” use the area around the canine teeth.

(3) Your speech may sound strange initially. But with practice – reading aloud from a book or newspaper – you should be able to speak clearly in a few days.
