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.

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Dentures offer numerous benefits to individuals in Indianapolis, IN providing a practical solution for those missing several or all of their teeth. The advantages of dentures include:

  • Enhanced appearance
  • Improved speech
  • Restored chewing ability
  • Boosted self-confidence
  • Support for oral health

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.

Not to air my personal journey to the internet but I hadn’t been to the dentist since the pandemic so I was naturally pretty anxious to go and yet I was treated with such patience, grace, kindness and humor by Dr. Craig, Campbell, and Lisa. Everyone I spoke to was so helpful and without judgement and a lot of reassurance- I can’t recommend this place enough!

About Us
What will wearing dentures feel like?
Your mouth will need to adjust to wearing dentures. Your gums may have some sore spots in the first couple of days as you wear them, but this will heal over time. The dentures may also make your mouth produce more saliva.
What should I not do after dentures?
There are a few guidelines to follow with new dentures. You should consult with your provider at Ball Dentistry about what kind of oral hygiene products to use when cleaning your teeth. In addition, avoid very hot water or liquids to not wear down your dentures' material.
How long can I wear my dentures each day?
You can wear your dentures for extended periods of time. At first, we recommend wearing your new dentures for at least 8 hours a day to help your mouth adjust and prevent sore spots. You should remove your dentures at night or when brushing and flossing.
