Dentures can help you restore the appearance and function of your smile while also providing you with a boost in confidence. It will take some time to adjust to your new dentures, but with these tips from Dr. Patel at The Denture Center in Monroe, you can make the adjustment period easier.
Adjustments Are Necessary
Dentures are not just a one visit and done. Over time, at least once a year, you will want to visit your dentist for any adjustments, relines, or cleanings that need to be done. Regular visits to the dentist for your overall oral health are still necessary.
Eat the Correct Foods
No matter how real your dentures look, according to Dr. Patel in Monroe, you need to make certain changes to your diet. Most denture wearers discover they need to avoid specific foods, including corn on the cob and hard nuts. Most patients prefer softer foods in the first few months, such as potatoes, chicken, fish, ice cream, and more.
Whether you have partial or full dentures, you must brush your dentures daily with a soft-bristle toothbrush and Liquid Dial Soap. Avoid toothpaste and any whitening products as they are too abrasive for dentures and can damage them.
