What to Expect
In the beginning, your new partial denture may feel bulky or awkward. This is normal, and you will eventually use to it. Also, inserting and removing the partial denture like any other new things will require some practice.
Always follow the instructions given by your dentist as your denture should fit into place with relative ease. Remember never bit down to force the partial denture into position, This could bend or break the clasps.
Your dentist will give you specific instruction about how long the denture should be worn and when it should be removed. Initially, your dentist may advise you to wear your partial denture all the time. Although this may be uncomfortable at first, it’s the quickest way to find out if any areas need adjustment. For example, if your denture puts too much pressure on a particular area, that spot will become sore and it hurts. Your dentist will adjust the partial denture to fit more comfortably. After making adjustments, your dentist will probably recommend that you take the partial denture out of your mouth before going to bed and replace it in the morning.
You will enjoy eating more with dentures. In the beginning, eat soft foods that are cut into small pieces. Try to chew on both sides of the mouth to keep even pressure. Avoid foods that are extremely sticky or hard. You may want to avoid chewing gum during the adjustment period. Don’t worry you will be able to chew gum later.
A partial denture can also help improve your speech. If it’s hard for you to pronounce certain words, just be patient, practice reading out loud. Repeat the words that give you trouble. With time, you will become better and better speaking properly with your partial denture.
Type of Dentures
Implant dentures: These dentures are secured to titanium posts that have been implanted into your jaw. They function and look like natural teeth and have many advantages like comfort and stability.
Cosmetic dentures: These dentures are specifically created to help maintain healthy jaw muscles. After a period of time with tooth loss, the jawbone slowly diminishes, creating a sunken, older look. The cosmetic dentures are seated upon the jaw and adjoining facial muscles, giving facial support. This also helps relaxing facial muscles for a more lifted, youthful appearance.
Overdentures: Some of your teeth may be healthy and you may not require a full set of new teeth, therefore your dentist advises you overdenture which can fit over the remaining healthy teeth.
Partial dentures or removable dentures: They replace a tooth or several teeth. The replacement teeth are affixed to a gum-colored base, filling the space, with a clasp that attaches to your natural teeth.
