Getting Dentures – Physical and Emotional Changes You Can Expect

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

Getting affordable quality dentures is a positive experience overall, but there may be a few emotional bumps in the road. Finding a skilled, affordable dentist is half the battle. Once you’ve worked out the budget details, your dentist will begin treatment by extracting your remaining natural teeth. Because they’re an integral part of your body and important to your appearance, losing the last of your teeth may cause some unexpected grief. Once your new dental plates are placed, they will probably feel strange in your mouth. Your body may react by producing more saliva, or you may gag at first. In time, these frustrating physical sensations and emotions will resolve.



If you receive a set of immediate dentures to use while your mouth heals, you’ll eventually transition to permanent ones. While this requires an additional adjustment period, it won’t take the same amount of time. Your gums will have healed by the time you get your permanent set, so you should have fewer fitting problems and less mouth irritation than you did the first time. Because you’ve already been through the process, and you’ll know what to expect, adjusting to the new set will be much easier.

Talk to your dentist if you have feelings of anxiety, apprehension, confusion, or uncertainty. Developing good communication with your dentist is essential for getting the best results and minimizing the emotional impact of dentures. Getting dentures is a major life change, so don’t hide your concerns. Ask questions. Your dentist can help you understand how your new dentures will affect your looks, your ability to speak and eat, and your physical comfort. You’re not alone; dentists help people deal with the impact of getting dentures every day.
