Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures


Posted on 12/1/2023 by Dr. Hallas

Can I Get My Dentures After Staying Without Teeth For a Long Period?


If a person has been without teeth for an extended period, the jawbone can undergo shrinkage, leading to challenges in achieving a proper fit for dentures. In such cases, individuals in this situation must schedule a consultation with our dental professional, who can provide expert guidance.

How Long Does It Take To Get Dentures?


Getting dentures requires multiple dental visits and can span several weeks. This process entails taking impressions of your mouth, constructing a model, and customizing the dentures to ensure they fit well and look natural. The precise timeline may vary depending on individual factors and circumstances.

How Long Does It Take To Get Used To Wearing Dentures?


The adjustment period for wearing dentures varies from person to person. You will initially feel uncomfortable or awkward, and it can take up to six weeks to get used to wearing dentures. You may experience increased salivation, soreness, or difficulty speaking and eating during this time.

Can I Sleep With My Dentures?


It is advisable to take out dentures before going to bed. This allows your mouth tissues to rest and rejuvenate during sleep. Sleeping without dentures allows for proper oral hygiene and reduces the risk of complications such as fungal infections or denture stomatitis.

How Painful Is It To Receive Dentures?


The process of receiving dentures is not painful. However, you will experience some discomfort and mild irritation after getting dentures. This discomfort typically diminishes as your mouth adjusts to them.

What Should I Do If My Dentures Become Loose?


Changes in your jawbone and gum tissues over time can impact the fit of your dentures. If you notice that your dentures have become loose or uncomfortable, it is crucial to seek assistance from our dentist.
