When you have lost a significant number of your teeth, it is in your best interest to get them replaced so that you can eat and talk like before. Dentures are a viable restorative method that many people have already benefited from.
Getting Used to Them
For the first few days you have your dentures, they may feel a little funny. This is completely normal. Once you have used them for a little bit, they will feel much better.
Eating and Speaking
Once you get used to wearing your new dentures, you will be ready to eat and talk with them. Your dentures will allow you to accomplish these tasks with ease. Pronouncing certain words might take some practice, but after more time, you will be talking just like you used to.
Taking Care of Oral Health
Even with dentures, you still need to brush your gums and tongue in order to remove any harmful bacteria. This will reduce your likelihood of developing periodontal disease. You will also want to brush your dentures with the proper tools.
Dentures look completely natural, so you have nothing to worry about if your dentist recommends getting them as a restoration. If you want to learn more about dentures or other dental options available to you, call New England Dental Health Services PC in Orange at 203-799-3311.
