What do dentures feel like?

If you’ve never had a denture or partial before, it may feel awkward until you become accustomed to it. It will take time to adjust to your new prosthetic. Your muscles will have to retrain themselves to talk and eat. Additionally, your bite may feel different. Your prosthetic may feel too large initially, and some patients say they feel as if their lips are being “pushed forward” as well. These are all very common things your Florence dentist hears every day from our patients, so don’t worry.

You may also have some discomfort until your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures. This is a normal part of the healing process, and our dentists can address any problem areas that persist during your adjustment appointments.

Realistic expectations as a new denture or partial wearer are essential. It will take time, patience, and regular visits to the Dental Center of Florence to be a successful denture wearer. If all the necessary steps are followed, the transition will go as smoothly as possible. Our Dental Center of Florence team strives to address any concerns you may have during the adjustment process.
