Have you just got your first set of dentures? This can be a challenging time but there is a positive side. We’ve just reviewed an article written by Healdove about what it’s like when you first get dentures. We’ve summarised the main points that you can use straight away.
A person has to make a decision when in this situation when all remaining teeth are at such a shape that full clearance is only way in that case infected rotting teeth are poisoning you and you have to do something about it. The most important is to think positive – millions of people are wearing full or partial dentures and they are doing well.
Another point is that immediate dentures will be there only for 3 month, after that dentures will be relined where all fitting surface will be renewed or replaced completely and that strait away will make them 1000% more comfortable.
During that period of healing of gums where body dissolves connective bone dentures not fitting well at all ,and in case that patient cannot tolerate them temporary reline can be made, which is a lot cheaper and can be done during one appointment only.
Another example, patient has to get used to a dentures, your mind has to accept it that dentures now are your teeth, they are part of your body now. you will learn how to control them with time you will find that balance(it’s like learning how ride bicycle again,)it takes some time ,but the it just comes to you.
Another thing if denture are made correctly (besides aesthetics)all the rules of making exceptional dentures are followed,( E.g.; McGregor technique) than patient will tolerate dentures quicker and will learn how to use them Quicker then then ordinary choppers that produced by a dentists those days.
Now one use a face bow except dental prosthetist because dentist has to have a face bow that will be compatible with fully adjustable articulator that dental technician has or has not, or face bow reading may be distorted during travelling from dental clinic to a dental lab which can be located on the other side of town.
That is why it’s better to go to Denture Clinic where everything is done by one person from primary impressions to an issue of a denture set, and there is nobody else to blame Ha-ha.
So most important is to be positive, don’t expect the world and you will be fine I hands of a good Dental prosthetist.
