Dentures are specially tailored to your mouth to give the appearance of a full set of teeth. In addition to helping you eat, drink, and speak, these appliances support your lips and cheeks.
After your dentures in Calgary are fitted, there may be an initial adjustment period, so start out eating non-sticky foods that are easy to bite into, and cut your food into small pieces. Your speech may also take a bit of effort when you first get your dentures, but should return to normal in little time.
In the first few days, you may notice excess saliva in your mouth, or you may note that your dentures loosen when you sneeze, cough, or yawn. This should improve with time.
When you sleep, you’ll need to store your dentures in a cleaning solution. You’ll also want to clean your dentures twice a day using denture brushes.
If your dentures are uncomfortable or misaligned, you should see a dentist for a refitting. Seeing a dentist every six months will help you ensure that your dentures remain properly aligned. For all matters concerning dental implants in Calgary, Forest Lawn Dental is the resource people trust.
