When you first get your dentures, you will visit your dentist. Here you will try your new teeth for the first time and you will be asked to open and close your mouth. Things will feel strange, but discomfort should not be present. If you feel pain on putting in your dentures, tell your dentist. They may need filing down. Just a tiny amount can make a big difference. So, your teeth should not be painful to wear. But what else should you expect?
First things first. Your dentures will feel strange. You are not used to having them in your mouth and they will feel like they shouldn’t be there. You will constantly pass your tongue around your mouth in the same way you do when you have a new filling. Asides them feeling strange, you may have trouble swallowing. If so, be patient. Try your dentures in the comfort of your own home, and litttle by little, get used to them.
Once you can keep your teeth in your mouth you are half way to living with dentures succesfully. As well as having problems swallowing you will undoubtedly have trouble talking. Once again, start at home where you can practise easily and comfortably.
