Well-fitting dentures should offer you Retention, Support, and Stability. If you find that your dentures are moving about and or are causing you sores, it is imperative to have one of our Denturists inspect your denture(s), and examine your mouth.
All dentures may need some adjustments from time to time as they settle in or as your mouth changes and this is normal! Denture adjustments may be required throughout the life of your denture because your entire mouth (gums, tissues) are ever changing now that there are missing your natural teeth.
OTHER TIPS FOR ADJUSTING TO YOUR NEW DENTURES
Please remember the following:
- Wear your new denture(s) as long as possible- This is imperative. If you are not wearing your dentures, you’ll never get used to them. It is normal that dentures may need to be adjusted from time to time. If you have a sore spot, rinse with warm salt water (this toughens & heals the gum tissue), if the sore spot persists after a few days, call and schedule an adjustment with your Denturist.
- Do not attempt to adjust your own denture. Adjusting your own denture can damage your denture and your mouth and void any warranty in place. Your denture was created by injecting acrylic into a mold at high pressure or with a sophisticated milling machine or 3D printing. Professional polishing tools are used to ensure that the denture is smooth and does not irritate the gums. In addition, by adjusting your own denture, you can create small scratches which are ideal for breeding bacteria. This can lead to bad breath and other complications. At Minuk Denture Clinic, we pride ourselves on offering Manitoba residents free aftercare after their denture has been inserted.
- Be Patient with your new dentures. Remember to be patient with yourself, and your new denture(s). Getting new dentures is something that generally happens every 5 years, so you need to make sure that you are patient with yourself and your dentures.
