This month we are all about soothing your oral discomfort from wearing dentures! Even though some discomfort is a part of life for many new denture wearers, it is possible to reduce and eliminate some of that discomfort!

If oral pain is a problem for you, getting used to denture is an important factor in your health. Fortunately, with Classic Denture Center, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for your great new smile!

Try a few of these tips to help you adjust to your new dentures in Portland OR:

Set Realistic Expectations:
Just like when wearing braces, your dentures will seem like there is a foreign object in your mouth at first. It can be difficult to speak, eat, or act naturally while wearing them. You might experience some shock in the beginning, but after a bit of time, you will find yourself getting used to the feeling.

Eat Healthy Food: ┬áDuring the early phases of wearing dentures, don’t forget to eat nutritious foods for more forgiving, processed items. Staying healthy is a big part of denture wearing success.

Sing Your Speech: You might not know this, but music is a great form of speech training. While wearing your new dentures, try singing along to your favorite songs! This technique can help you get used to forming certain words and get back to talking like yourself!

These are just a few ways to get used to your new dentures in Portland Oregon! We will cover a few more next time.
