What is a denture?
Dentures are used to replace your missing teeth if you have lost some or all of your natural teeth. Dentures can improve your health by enabling you to eat and speak normally as well as your appearance by preventing the sagging of facial muscles, which makes a person with no teeth look much older.
Types of Dentures
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
How Long Before I Get Used to My Dentures?
New dentures may feel awkward or uncomfortable for the first few weeks or even months. Eating and speaking with dentures might take a little practice. A bulky or loose feeling is not uncommon, while the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to hold your dentures in place. Excessive saliva flow, a feeling that the tongue does not have adequate room, and minor irritation or soreness are also not unusual. If you experience irritation, see your dentist.
