Dentures are a foreign dental appliance, whether it’s a Full Denture or Partial Denture. It differs from cases to cases some people adapt to it instantly while others require longer time to adjust.
You will be provided with Brochures once you discussed your treatment plan with your Dental Prosthetist. Brochures will specify how to maintain your new dentures. Epically if you are having an IMMIDATE denture inserted.
What to expect with your first set of dentures:
Your new denture will improve the suction, the appearance, the fit and in some cases improve your bite. Improvement of your Appearance and fit can be evident at the insert stage, however the suction and bite may require time. Your new denture may take 1-24 hours to adapt to your palate, chicks and lips. Your lower denture work differently. It is important to understand that upper dentures gain suction from the soft tissue on the back of your palate. Lower denture can only gain stability from your lower ridge and the assistance of your tongue, cheeks and lips working together. These processes can occur instantly or take 1-24hours for maximum stability.
It is important to work closely with your Dental Prosthetsit to reach these goals as soon as possible. Your first dentures may never cause you any pain or discomfort, however your Dental Prosthetsit will advise you take extra care and precaution once your denture is complete and inserted.
