How to Stay Smiling With Dentures

There’s no reason why your smile can’t still light up a room when you’re wearing dentures. With an eye for detail and a little bit of research, your dentures will make you unafraid to start enjoying your life again.

The Fit

It’s perfectly normal to have an initial feeling of discomfort when you first get your dentures. It might take a few days or even up to a week for your gums to get used to the sudden pressure and movement. However, if your dentures are still feeling uncomfortable after a prolonged period of time then it might be wise to call up your dentist and check that you have the right fit.

Your dentist will be able to give you advice on how to properly wear your dentures for optimal comfort.

The Colour

The colour of a pair of dentures will play a big part in how natural they look as a part of your face. Sometimes, the wrong shade of dentures can appear too yellow or even too blue in your mouth, a good dentist will be able to match your dentures closely to the colour of your gums.

It might be advisable to take a picture of yourself with a flash camera to check that your dentures look right when you’re smiling.

The Care

The most important part of denture ownership is making sure that you maintain proper hygiene during and after use. Your dentist can advise you on the correct type of cleansers to buy in order to clean your dentures and also how and where to store them.

You might choose to use a denture fixative in order to maintain the appearance of your dentures over time. A fixative will allow you to stabilize your dentures and fill voids within them.
