Dentures Syracuse NYWhen it comes to your teeth—even your false teeth with dentures—it is important to take proper care of them.  Whether you have your natural teeth or are sporting dentures in Syracuse, Dr. Karen Lawitts is available to offer some helpful tips for ensuring your dentures in Syracuse remain in tip-top shape.

Tips for Patients in Syracuse with Dentures:

If you have dentures, Dr. Lawitts offer several tips for helping you care for your dentures.
Each Individual Patient is Different. Everyone is different.  And that is the same for your dentures in Syracuse. While some people may tell you they never had to go through any adjustments—that is not the norm. Everyone adjusts to new dentures differently.  So, if you require adjustments, don’t worry.
Soreness. When you first begin wearing your dentures, you might experience soreness.  These areas develop, as your gums are getting used to the new dentures.  Remember, though, not to adjust your dentures yourself—they will settle on the soft tissues on their own. 
Chewing. Learning to chew with your new dentures in Syracuse may not come easy, as it can take up to 8 weeks to full adjust.  However, practice makes perfect.  Try to first limit your diet to sift foods that are easy to chew.  Once you grow accustomed to this, you can gradually move on to other foods by taking small bites and chewing slowly.
Speaking. Just like chewing, speaking with your dentures will take practice and perseverance, as well.  Reading aloud is very helpful in learning to pronounce words distinctly.  Try practicing words and sounds that seem to give you the most difficulty.
Oral hygiene.  Cleaning your dentures daily is vital to maintaining your oral health.  Talk to Dr. Lawitts, our dentists in Syracuse, NY, for further instructions on proper cleaning methods to maintain optimal oral hygiene.
