Tips for Adjusting to Your Fountain of Youth® Dentures

Sanford Dentist

As we age, our natural teeth can become damaged or decayed. If you are missing your teeth, you may want to talk to your dentist about the possibility of receiving Fountain of Youth® Dentures. When you receive your new dentures, you are sure to be impressed with your gorgeous, natural-looking smile. To help you prepare for your new dentures, here are some tips to keep in mind during the adjustment process:

Expect Some Minor Irritation
While your Fountain of Youth® Dentures will be designed to fit comfortably in your jaw, you can expect some minor feelings of irritation during your first days of wearing your new appliance. After a brief period of adjustment, your muscles, gums, and jawbone will grow accustomed to the sensation of your new dentures. Once you have gotten used to your dentures, you will hardly feel that they are there.

Introduce New Foods Slowly
One of the benefits of Fountain of Youth® Dentures is that these oral appliances will allow you to eat and drink like normal. However, your dentist may recommend that you introduce new foods slowly during the first few days. After you have eaten soft foods, you will be ready to try solid items.

Practice Talking and Smiling
After you receive your new dentures, you may want to take some time to practice talking and smiling while you are wearing your appliance. With practice, it will be possible to grow completely accustomed to talking while you are wearing your Fountain of Youth® Dentures. Most patients find that they can talk, laugh, and smile after the initial adjustment period is over.
