Getting dentures is recommended for people who have lost a few or all of their teeth. Your dentist can inform you more about the process, but here are the basics to be familiar with.
No two dentures should be alike. Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth so that your dentures can be designed from scratch to perfectly fit. While you are being fitted, you can ask your dentist anything you want to know about the restoration.
Get Used to Them
There is a transition period when you will need to get used to wearing dentures. This can take a few weeks, but after some time, you will not even be aware anything is different.
Perform Routine Maintenance
To ensure your dentures last as long as possible you need to care for them. This involves brushing them every day to prevent bacteria from building up. You also need to leave your dentures in a special solution every night. Do not go to bed wearing your dentures.
See a Dentist for Refitting
Over time, your dentures may begin to feel slightly off. This is completely normal because your jaw is changing. When this occurs, see your dentist promptly to get your dentures relined.
Dentures can help greatly in allowing you to talk and eat like you used to. Get more information about this treatment by calling Premier Dentures and Implants at 225-774-3368.
