Adjusting to Dentures

Posted .

For most people, getting dentures is a large adjustment. Getting accustomed to the fit of the false teeth, having them optimized when necessary and learning to care for them suitably will take some time. Please understand that the whole team at Irvine Dental Group is rooting for you, and we’re here to assist you in whatever way you need us to. We hope the following information can be of use to you during this transition phase.

Once you’ve been fitted for dentures, your oral cavity will need some time to get used to them. Normally food is the only foreign material in your mouth, so your brain will likely send salivation signals to your mouth, instigating surplus spit. You might also detect that there are slight marks on your gums after removing the false teeth at first. Fortunately, these processes normally end within one to two days after patients begin wearing false teeth. We suggest that you arrange follow-up appointments with us so that Dr. Don Niu can readjust your false teeth as needed when you’re first getting used to them. After a couple of weeks, your false teeth should feel totally natural to your oral cavity.
