How can I get used to my new dentures?
Dentures can dramatically alter your appearance and self-confidence. You can smile with confidence and eat the foods you love without worrying about discomfort.
However, just like any other new dental appliance, dentures do take some getting used to. In general, the best advice we have for you is to be patient with yourself. In time, you will become accustomed to the fit and feel of your new dentures.
Tips For New Dentures
In the meanwhile, here are a few tips to help you through the first few weeks of wearing your new dentures:
- Eating: While your dentures are still new, it’s best to start off with soft foods. Start with something like yogurt until you get the feel of eating with your new dentures.
- Speaking: This can be challenging for many denture-wearers. While you’re in the privacy of your home, read aloud, talk to your family and even your dog! Pretty soon you’ll be speaking clearly with ease.
- Smiling and Laughing: Now that you have your new teeth, you have every reason to smile! This also takes some getting used to, so take the opportunity and practice at home in front of the mirror. In no time at all you’ll be smiling with confidence.
Your dentures will vastly improve your appearance, your confidence, and your lifestyle. Please contact our Vienna dental office for more tips about getting used to your new dentures.
