Posted .

You may have some questions or concerns about life with dentures. Dr. Janelle Bacino and our team are happy to speak with you about any questions or concerns that you may have. Continue reading for some useful information about new dentures.

Adjusting to New Dentures

At first, your dentures may feel strange or uncomfortable. They may feel bulky and unstable in your mouth. As time goes on and your cheek and tongue muscles become accustomed to them, these issues should fade. Please visit Bacino Dentistry if you do not become used to your new dentures in a few weeks. They may need to be adjusted. Patients often need to have one or more follow-up appointments to get the right fit, so do not be shy about making an appointment.

Eating With Dentures

You may worry that eating will be difficult or uncomfortable with dentures. It is true that eating with dentures is a bit of an adjustment, but once you become used to them, you’ll be able to eat most foods with ease. In the beginning, eat soft foods and other food that is easy to eat and chew. As time goes on, reintroduce firmer types of foods. Chew with both sides of your mouth to avoid dislodging them.
