Tips for Wearing Dentures
A healthy and natural-looking smile can be fundamental to your confidence. Easy Denture provides tips for wearing dentures to help you adjust and feel more confident.
As a new denture wearer, we encourage you to be patient, it can take some time to get used to wearing dentures. Below are some things you can do to help ensure you smile confidently.
Showing Too Much or Not Enough Teeth?
It’s common as you get used to wearing dentures, to feel like your dentures are too large or that your lips are being pushed forward during the first few weeks or months of wearing them. This sensation of a “full-mouth” can feel a bit awkward at first, but with time and regular use, the feeling should subside. It is important not to let it affect your self-confidence and remember that this sensation is usually more noticeable to you than to others.
If you feel like you are seeing too much teeth or not enough teeth, remember you can re-boil Easy Denture up to 20xs to make adjustments. Watch our Video on Tips for Wearing Dentures – adjusting the fit to show more or less teeth.
Getting used to Wearing Dentures
If you are a new denture wearer who is dealing with feeling like you are going to gag while wearing a denture – remember that a denture is a soft-tissue supported prosthetic and will take getting used to, especially if you have never worn a denture in the past. We suggest wearing the denture in small doses as you become used to it.
A great tip from one of our customers: Suck on a hard, sugar-free life safer mint to help alleviate the gagging feeling. This should help as you grow used to the feeling of the denture rubbing against the top palate.
Clean Your Dentures Daily
Keeping your dentures in great shape should be a priority in your daily routine. Use denture cleaning tablets daily to keep your dentures fresh and looking their best! For a deep clean, you may choose to use an Ultrasonic, UV cleaner. We recommend you do not leave your Easy Denture in water for an extended period of time – ie overnight.
Similar to natural teeth, smoking and consuming foods and beverages like coffee and tea can stain your dentures and make cleaning them more difficult. Be mindful of these factors and take proper care of your dentures.
Use a Good Adhesive
New denture wearers may worry about denture slippage, ease your mind by choosing a strong denture adhesive cream. In the beginning, slippage may be more likely as your mouth muscles adjust to holding the dentures in place, as your muscles become used to wearing dentures, slippage should subside.
