What to Expect With New Dentures
When you first get your new dentures, you’ll be excited to see your new smile! However, you may also feel a little awkward or uncomfortable while eating or speaking in the beginning. This is completely normal and may take several weeks to get used to them. But when dentures fit well, you’ll quickly gain more confidence and find it easier to eat or interact with others each day.
Patients commonly experience the following with new dentures:
- Dentures feeling bulky or loose. This feeling will get better as the tongue and cheek muscles strengthen and adjust to hold the dentures in place.
- Hypersalivation. An increase in saliva is a reaction to an outside object in the mouth. However, this will subside as patients get used to wearing the dentures.
- Mild irritation. As the mouth and gums adjust to accommodate the dentures, any minor soreness you experience should go away completely. If you have excessive pain or bleeding, contact your dentist right away. It could be a sign that the dentures do not fit properly or other issues have developed.

Types of Dentures We Offer in Carson City
Conventional full dentures are made for those who have had all their teeth removed. Before the dentures can be placed, patients need to wait until the gums are fully healed, which can take several months.
Unlike conventional full dentures, these dentures are immediately inserted after the teeth are removed. Gum and jaw measurements are taken before the scheduled extraction procedure. That way, the dentures are ready to be placed and patients don’t have to be without teeth for an extended period. However, the dentures will need to be relined as the bone heals and reshapes.
When only some teeth are missing, partial dentures are often the best option. Made from both metal and acrylic, they accommodate the remaining natural teeth while providing durable false teeth to improve jaw and mouth functionality and strength. Partial dentures also prevent the shifting of remaining teeth and other structural damage.
Are Dentures the Right Option for Me?
Dentures are an excellent option for many patients with missing teeth. However, you should always consult your dentist to see if they are the best choice for you. Depending on several factors, dental implants, bridges or other cosmetic dentistry options should also be considered.
Contact either of our Carson City locations to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists. We have denture specialists who can answer all your questions and discuss what might work best.
