At first, your dentures may feel strange. They may feel bulky and unstable in your mouth. As time goes on and your cheek and tongue muscles become accustomed to them, these issues should fade. If you do not adjust to your new dentures after a few weeks or months, please visit James A. Johnson, DDS to see if they need to be adjusted.
You may worry that eating will be difficult or uncomfortable with dentures. Once you become used to them, you’ll be able to eat most foods easily. When you first begin wearing dentures, eat soft foods and other food that is easy to eat and chew. As time goes on, reintroduce firmer types of foods. Chew with both sides of your mouth to avoid dislodging them.
