Remember: It takes time for you to adjust to your new dentures. For success you need to keep your dentures in your mouth as long as possible for the first few weeks. This is so that your mouth will adjust – much in the same way you do for fitting a new shoe or boot.
- With any area in your mouth that are sore – be sure to report them to your dentist.
- Be sure to visit your dentist within 48-72 hours after you have been fitted for your dentures.
- A week or two after you have been fitted with your dentures, you will need to get another adjustment by your dentist.
- Never make you own adjustments or repairs at home, even if you are handy with tools.
- Your dentures will not have the same chewing abilities of your natural teeth
- You may have new sensations and more saliva – which will subsided.
- It is normal to have a few sore spots in your mouth when you first get your dentures.
- Biting your tongue or cheek at first is normal.
- Be sure to follow the cleaning instructions from your dentist
- Any problems with your dentures be sure to contact your dentist immediately.
