Advice for Dentures Wearers

artifical denturesThe first day after the placement of the dentures:

  • Don't worry if you notice an increase in the amount of saliva you have. It is a natural reaction from your bod and will last for a short while. 
  • Cut your food into small pieces and place it on the back teeth. If they are full dentures avoid biting with the front teeth. Also avoid sticky foods like chewing gum and turkish delight. You can get use to a partial denture on the first day, a full set of dentures may take up to two weeks.
  • Practice speaking and give your tongue a chance to get used to the new circumstances easier. Before placing the dentures you were able to fully stretch out your tongue, after placement there is a more limited place. Reading outloud is a very good way of practising.
  • Do not make any alterations to the dentures with files or other tools if you can feel something bothering you. In most cases a little filing down by the dentist can resolve the issue.

  • Don't leave your dentures when you sleep, especially during the night. The tissue holding the dentures are submitted to a lot of pressure when they are wearing them and need to rest.
  • The dentures need to be cleaned regularly with a toothbrush and toothpaste. For even better cleaning you can place them in water overnight with a specialised cleaning tablet that can be brought at a pharmacy.
  • Maintain excellent oral hygiene. When you remove the dentures from your mouth, clean your teeth well, also clean the interdental areas, and implants if they exist and the tongue. If there are no natural teeth clean you mouth with a soft toothbrush.  
  • Don't forget to use your dentures everyday. If you don't wear them, even for a short time, there is a danger of teeth moving that can lead to the illfitting of the dentures once you wear them again. 
  • A re-check of the dentures should occur at least once a year. The gums on which the dentures are placed do not stay the same for life, but moved due to the absorption of the bone underneath them. This means that the dentures may need to be adjusted overtime.

NB: The VSmile dental clinic advise you that: keeping healthy the tissue, teeth and implants that support the dentures is directly linked to the long lasting good condition of the dentures within the mouth
