There is no hiding from the fact that missing teeth in your mouth alter the way you look. It also impacts the functionality of your mouth. From the way you eat, what you eat, how you speak, or even smile, it all gets impacted with a few missing teeth. You are then in an inevitable situation of having to wear dentures to change all of the above.
Of course, there is no comparison to your natural teeth, however, dentures admittedly make a huge difference to your aesthetic appeal and the functionality of your mouth. Given these incentives, it is worth contacting us to get fitted with a set of good dentures and lead a fuller life.
Getting Accustomed to Dentures
One of the biggest changes with dentures is getting accustomed to eating. This is because of the noise that you hear when chewing on food. This sound may seem loud in your head and you may get conscious about it. However, you need to remember that the sound is just in your head and others cannot hear this sound.
Another aspect of getting used to your new dentures is the food you eat and the way you eat them. It is best to choose softer foods like soft vegetables and fruits. If you love eating meat, then it should be soft. Eating small morsels should be the order of the day. Huge mouthfuls can be difficult for your dentures to manage.
Do not try biting hard food items aggressively with your dentures as food could get stuck or the dentures could break. Our dentist's help you understand the best practices to maintain healthy dentures and get accustomed to them easily. Give us a call so you can educate yourself on the use of dentures.
