Q: What are dentures?

A: Dentures are removable appliances used to replace missing teeth. Full dentures are custom made to fit snugly over the gums and replace all the teeth in the dental arch, while partials are best for replacing one or more missing teeth.

Q: How long does it take to get used to wearing dentures?

A: It usually takes a couple of weeks to get used to wearing dentures. During this time, you might experience discomfort and difficulty speaking and eating. However, these problems should go away as you adjust to your new dentures.

Q: Can I sleep in my dentures?

A: No, you should not sleep in your dentures. Remove them before going to bed and brush your gums and teeth before putting them back in the morning. Full dentures should be soaked in a denture solution to keep them moist overnight

Q: Can I still eat with dentures?

A: Yes, you can still eat with dentures. However, you may have to adjust to eating softer foods at first. Avoid chewy or hard foods until you get used to wearing your dentures.

Q: How do I clean my dentures?

A: You should brush your dentures daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild soap. Rinse them well after brushing. Soak your dentures overnight in a mild cleaning solution to keep them clean and fresh.

Q: How often should I see my dentist if I wear dentures?

A: You should see your dentist twice every year for a checkup. Your dentist will clean your dentures, make sure they fit correctly and adjust or replace them as necessary.

Q: What if I have more questions about dentures?
