What factors to consider for a new denture wearer?

It's an old saying “learn to walk before you run” certainly applies to the successful, secure and comfortable wearing of dentures.

  1. Feeling of fullness
    New dentures feel fuller because the person has been without teeth for a period of time. The previously sunken facial structures and muscles are now supported with a new denture into a normal position. This feeling eventually goes away and a more youthful appearance results.
  2. Adjustment in speech
    The patient is advised to speak slowly, clearly and read allowed to produce proper speech. This will allow the tounge and other muscles to adapt to the new denture.
  3. Adjustment in eating
    Chewing pattern develops over several weeks. Start by chewing small pieces of soft food and gradually increasing the firmness.
