Getting used to your new dentures from your dentist in Kennesaw

As a skilled dentures dentist in Kennesaw, Dr. Vo understands that getting used to new dentures can take a little bit of time. Even with the challenges that may come from your new denture appliance, the benefits of this treatment, with or without support from dental implants, is worth the effort of learning new habits.

The most common issues with new dentures will occur in the first days after you receive your new appliance. This does not mean that there is a problem with fit, or that you are not a good candidate for dentures. It simply means that your tongue, cheeks, and lips have to grow accustomed to these new teeth and gum fixtures.

We hope, as your dentures dentist in Kennesaw, that being prepared will help you through the process of getting new dentures at 32 Dental. The four common challenges that new dentures present include:

Irritation


With new dentures in place, even with a strong adhesive, eating may result in minor irritation. To combat this challenge upon receiving new dentures, try starting out with soft foods until the irritation subsides. Add new foods as your gums heal and you learn to chew with your new appliance. Should irritation become overwhelming, remove dentures, and contact our office for an assessment of gums and your denture appliance. When dentures are causing irritation that seems too much, wear them on your way to your review appointment so your dentures dentist in Kennesaw can immediately see areas of concern.

Fit


Initially, it is common for a new denture appliance to feel somewhat loose. This is especially common with lower dentures. Fit should improve with time, as the muscles of the mouth adapt to their new fixture. For the first night or two, it is acceptable to wear your dentures while you sleep. This prolonged wear encourages the tongue, lips, and cheeks to adjust. After the first two days, fit should feel much better and dentures should be removed for sleep.

Eating


Dentures have long been associated with eating dilemmas. Even with today's advanced dentures that fit far better than their predecessors did, eating should be approached carefully at first. Starting out slow is your best bet for helping the mouth become accustomed to eating with your new appliance. Liquids and soft foods are best for the first week or so, with harder foods reserved for the time when you are feeling more comfortable with the fit of dentures.

Eating can be made easier by cutting food into smaller pieces, which are easier to chew. Biting down with the front teeth should also be avoided, as this may cause dentures to dislodge. Biting and chewing are best performed with back teeth. When chewing, using both sides of the mouth promotes balance and helps dentures stay firmly situated.

Speaking


Within the first week, it is common for patients to experience an increase in salivation; however, this will diminish quickly. We encourage our denture patients to talk as much as possible while at home. With practice, speech will sound just as it did with natural teeth.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
