Before & After Pictures


Mouth Guard You will notice right away that your new dentures seem very large in your mouth. You may even experience a gag reaction to their fullness, particularly in the back of your mouth. This is a normal first reaction. Be patient. In time, with a little practice, you will adjust naturally to this initial fullness, and barely notice them in your mouth.

Excessive Saliva
When you first received your new dentures, you probably noticed an increase in the flow of saliva in your mouth. Again, this is a normal response to the unfamiliar object in your mouth, namely the denture. On average, most of us swallow about six hundred times a day. For the first few days of wearing your new dentures, you should try to swallow more frequently. In a few days (sometimes in just a few hours) , your mouth will become accustomed to the dentures and saliva flow will return to normal.

Many new denture wearers have difficulty with their speech at first. A common problem is pronouncing words containing "s" sounds. In most cases, practicing speech aloud with your new dentures in place will help restore your normal speaking quality quickly. One of the best practice methods is to read aloud from a book or magazine in front of a mirror to get used to the new speaking position of your tongue and new teeth. This will add confidence and comfort. Another good habit is to bite and swallow prior to speaking to "set" the dentures in position to improve clarity.

A basic fact of denture life is that you will not be able to bite down as hard as you could with natural teeth. Therefore, you can no longer chew in quite the same way. People with natural teeth chew on one side of the mouth and then on the other side. With dentures, you must take smaller bites and learn to chew on both sides of the mouth at the same time to prevent the dentures from rocking and dislodging. Here again it is just a matter of patience and practice before you will be eating your favourite foods without difficulty.

Maintaining Good Nutrition
One of the most critical areas of Denture After-Care is the maintenance of oral tissue and the ridge of bone that supports the dentures. The state of the health is directly influenced by diet and nutrition. So make sure you eat balanced meals and get the proper amounts of vitamins and minerals each day. We will be happy to give you nutritional advice if you have any questions about your diet.

Denture Care
The supporting bone and tissue in your mouth need regular rest from denture wearing. Therefore it is important that you take your dentures out everyday for a brief time or overnight. The best place to store them is in a special water filled plastic container called Denture Bath. This procedure will prevent your dentures from drying out which can, adversely affect their fit.
