Tips for any New Denture WearerWhen you have missing teeth, replacing them with dentures can help restore your smile's function and appearance. This gives you confidence and reassurance. However, using dentures for the first time can be uncomfortable. The first few weeks will need vigorous adjustment before you become used to your new dentures. Here are tips you can use to make your new experience more comfortable.

Adjusting Your Diet

Upon getting your new dentures, there are certain foods you should avoid for a comfortable experience. Foods like hard nuts can be tough on the dentures and cause great discomfort. Therefore, it is recommended that you stick to soft foods during the first few weeks if wearing dentures. You can go for foods like yogurt, eggs, potatoes, fish, and cooked vegetables, among others. While sticking to soft foods, it is important to maintain proper nutrition. Therefore, you should eat a balanced diet that includes healthy snacks.

Proper Denture Cleaning

Just like your natural teeth, dentures can accumulate tartar and plaque, causing dental infections. Therefore, it is essential to take good care of your dentures. You can do so by brushing and flossing them on a regular basis. Brush your dentures using antibacterial soap, warm water, and a toothbrush. Furthermore, you should also soak dentures in a denture cleanser to get rid of bacteria, food particles, and debris. Always remember to rinse them before reinsertion.

Speak More

As a new denture wearer, you might experience challenges with speech. The first few weeks might be problematic, but regular practice will get you used to them. Therefore, you should speak as much as possible during the first weeks. You can even read out loud for better progress. This will help you pronounce words correctly and speak effortlessly.
