How the Process of Getting Dentures Affects Your Mind and Body

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

You might not think getting affordable quality dentures would cause strong emotions, but sometimes it does. New physical sensations and unplanned feelings can make the process more complicated than you expect. It all begins with finding an affordable dentist you trust. Once your treatment plan is decided, you may face having your remaining natural teeth extracted. Because they’ve always been part of you, this can seem like a loss of identity or a defeat. You may not like the way your mouth looks without them. When your dental plates are finally in place, they may seem large and awkward. You may react to them by gagging or producing excess saliva. Physical and emotional symptoms like these are expected, and they will resolve over time.

The Transition to Permanent Dentures – If you receive a set of immediate dentures to use while your mouth heals, you’ll eventually transition to permanent ones. While this requires an additional adjustment period, it won’t take the same amount of time. Your gums will have healed by the time you get your permanent set, so you should have fewer fitting problems and less mouth irritation than you did the first time. Because you’ve already been through the process, and you’ll know what to expect, adjusting to the new set will be much easier.

Communicate with Your Dentist – Developing good communication with your dentist is essential for getting the best results and minimizing the emotional impact of dentures. Talk to your dentist if you have feelings of anxiety, apprehension, confusion, or uncertainty. Getting dentures is a major life change, so don’t hide your concerns. Ask questions. Your dentist can help you understand how your new false teeth will affect your looks, your ability to speak and eat, and your physical comfort. You’re not alone; dentists help people deal with the impact of getting dentures every day.
