When you leave our dental office in Flemington NJ with your beautiful new dentures, we will make sure that you have all the information you need regarding maintenance and care of your new dentures. When you first wear your new dentures, do not be surprised if they feel a bit awkward in your mouth. This is quite common, because your mouth will need some time to adjust to the new dentures. The important thing to remember is that your mouth will begin to feel comfortable shortly thereafter. It is important that you follow instructions given to you for denture maintenance and care so that your dentures do not become warped or broken, or otherwise damaged. You will want to eat softer foods which are easier to chew while you are becoming used to your new dentures. Avoid sticky or hard foods at this time. You will also want to thoroughly chew the food in your mouth, using both sides of your mouth, so that even pressure is put upon the dentures. You will also want to make sure that when you remove the dentures you do it in a safe manner. You may want to stand over a sink that is full with water, or over a towel that is placed on a table, so that if the dentures inadvertently fall they will land on a soft surface and will not break. When dentures are out of your mouth for an extended period of time, you will want to make sure that they are kept moist. You do not want to put dentures in hot water as they can warp. However, dentures do need to be stored as directed by our office, or they can dry out and become ruined.
