Denture Instructions

Occasionally, it is difficult to adapt to full or partial dentures. At first they may feel loose, bulky and awkward while speaking. For a quicker adjustment period, follow these instructions:

  1. At first, wear your dentures all the time.
  2. Do not use adhesive unless the dentists at Ball Dentistry advise you to do so.
  3. You should remove your dentures when you go to sleep.
  4. After removing dentures, clean with a toothbrush and place in a bowl of water. They can be soaked in a commercial denture cleanser, but brushing them is essential.
  5. Any signs of "sore spots," discomfort, or looseness that is causing you difficulty should be brought to our attention.

Never adjust the dentures yourself. Every person and every mouth is different; therefore, adjustment periods will vary.

Please remember that it will take time for you to become completely comfortable with your new teeth.

Denture Resorption

Within six months of starting to wear dentures, you will have already lost about 40% of your jaw bone structure.

If you have worn dentures for a few years, you already know about bone loss. The reason your denture doesn't fit like a year ago is that you don't have the same jaw bone structure to support them.

If you wear a partial denture, beware that you will have the same problem with bone loss.

A dental implant is the logical choice to help stop bone loss; however, once the jaw bone structure is lost, your options become limited.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. Partials have metal hooks that grab onto the neighboring teeth for support. Unfortunately, the hooks have a tendency to loosen up the teeth. Partial dentures have the tendency to get loose and require multiple adjustments throughout the years. On the upper, there is a large piece of metal that goes across the roof of the mouth that can interfere with taste sensation and/or have food collected under it. Additionally, the partial plate can press into the gum tissue and cause sores. The partial dental plate must be taken in and out each day for cleaning. It is certainly not an ideal alternative.

My whole family has gone here for years. The staff is friendly, they make referrals out to great providers too. Staff is patient with kids, and flexible in scheduling.
