Is it hard to get used to dentures in your mouth?

There is an adjustment period to new dentures.

You will need to get used to the new feeling and learn how eat and speak with them in your mouth. These feelings will gradually subside as you and your facial muscles adapt. You may find you have more saliva. This is common and will slowly return to normal within a few days.

You will also notice that your lower denture will feel looser than your upper denture. This is also normal, but if you find that it is bothersome, please speak with us because solutions may be available.
