For most people, getting dentures is a big adjustment. Getting used to the fit of the dentures, having them optimized when needed and learning to care for them suitably will take a little time. Please recognize that the whole staff at Smile Image Dentists is rooting for you, and we’re here to aid you in whatever way you need us to. We hope the following info can be of use to you during this transition period.
Once you’ve been fitted for false teeth, your mouth will need some time to acquaint with them. Regularly food is the only foreign substance in your oral cavity, so your brain will likely send salivation signals to your oral cavity, initiating surplus saliva. You may also detect that there are slight marks on your gums after taking out the dentures at first. Fortunately, these processes normally end within one to two days after patients begin donning dentures. We recommend that you plan follow-up checkups with us so that Dr. Kim Loan Nguyen can readjust your false teeth as necessary when you’re first getting used to them. After a couple of weeks, your dentures should feel totally natural to your mouth.
