5 tips for a smooth transition to dentures

Every patient’s journey is different. Here are the key steps to remember.

1. Continue to wear your dentures as your mouth adapts.

See your dentist as needed for adjustments.

2. How to eat with your new dentures

Choose soft foods. Avoid hard or sticky foods. Cut food into small pieces. Bite carefully and chew slowly. Chew using both sides of your mouth.

3. How to talk with dentures

Just like with eating, speaking will also get easier with practice. Read aloud to get used to talking with dentures and to get used to how they feel in your mouth.

4. How to clean your dentures

Clean your dentures daily with a denture cleanser and denture brush. Learn more about cleaning your dentures here.

5. Take your dentures out at bedtime

Give your gums a rest while you sleep.

Common issues for new denture wearers

Some common issues may occur when you first start wearing your dentures. These include increased saliva, soreness of the mouth muscles or along the gums, and the sensation that your dentures are loose or too big. Your tongue and mouth muscles will soon adjust and help keep your dentures in place, so these are common and will most likely go away.

Our patients love us

"I am deathly afraid of going to the dentist since a horrible experience as a child. I came to Aspen Dental for top teeth removal and dentures. They gave me medicine to take the night before and then when I went more was given. I hardly knew anything was done! Dr. Hall ( no relation) has gentle hands and heart. Best decision I have made. I love and appreciate the smile I now have. The whole team is great!!!"- Lorie H.
