Dentures – A Cost-Effective Option for Missing Teeth

dca-blog_dentures-mature-woman-apple

Lost or missing teeth can make eating, speaking, smiling, and socializing difficult or even embarrassing. You need a simple solution to restore your smile and get you back to living life happy and healthy. Dentures are one of the most affordable options for tooth replacement and are highly effective. Modern denture options have been carefully designed to mimic the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. With the right tips for adjusting to a life with denture wear and a few pointers on caring for your new dentures, you can enjoy all the social activities you have always enjoyed without fear, anxiety, or embarrassment.

When you get your first pair of dentures, you may have to endure an adjustment period in which you re-learn how to eat, drink, and speak. You will also need to be aware of the steps necessary to keep your gums healthy, so your denture set remains an effective replacement of your natural teeth.

Before you begin engaging in conversations again, take some time to learn how to speak with your dentures in place, since certain words may be difficult to say. Spend time in front of a mirror observing your speech patterns and practicing keeping your dentures in place as you move your tongue and mouth. Laughing and yawning may cause your dentures to become dislodged until you become comfortable with denture wear.

Because eating with dentures is a learned process, you should begin with soft foods, such as eggs or yogurt. Teach yourself to chew with the food distributed evenly on either side of the mouth to keep the dentures in perfect position. Sticky and hard-to-chew foods should be avoided as they can cause denture damage. After an adjustment period, you can begin to add more solid foods into your diet. However, you will always need to take small bites and eat slowly to prevent any denture issues.

Dentures may be worn all day, but should be removed each night to protect the other tissues of the mouth. For the first few days, you will need to wear your dentures around the clock—including to bed—to determine comfort and the possible need for denture adjustment.

Just like your real teeth, your dentures need daily care and attention to remain effective. Dentures must be carefully stored each night and cleaned daily.  Use a soft toothbrush to clean your dentures and always rinse your mouth with a mouthwash to clean and protect the tissues of the mouth.

Ask your dentist in Englewood about denture cost and whether they are a good option for you.
