Say Cheese! Dentures Will Put a Smile on Your Face!
Jun 21, 2023

You don’t want to be someone who never smiles in photographs because you are self-conscious about missing teeth! Get your smile and your confidence back with custom-made dental dentures. Your dentist at Dental Care Center can help you decide which of the following options are best for you:

Conventional Dentures

Conventional dentures are complete, removable dentures placed in your mouth after your natural teeth are removed and the tissues have had time to heal. This option isn’t for everyone, and you might have to go several months without teeth.

Immediate Dentures

Just as the name implies, Immediate dentures are inserted in your mouth the same day your natural teeth are removed. This means that you won’t have to be without teeth while your mouth is healing, but it also means that your dentures might have to be relined or remade once the tissues are healed. Talk to your Dental Care Center dentist to learn more about Same-Day Dentures.


An Overdenture fits over a small number of your natural teeth prepared by your dentist. This is an option if you have healthy natural teeth for the Overdenture to connect to.

What To Expect

Your Dental Care Center dentist will help you choose the best option for your needs, but no matter which one you choose, there will be an adjustment period. Your new dentures may feel loose and awkward until your cheek and tongue get used to holding them in place. You might have some soreness and minor irritation for the first few days while your mouth adjusts. If soreness persists, be sure to follow up with your dentist. You might also experience increased temporary saliva flow, which should clear up in a few days. 

Denture Care

It’s important to clean your dentures and your mouth every morning to avoid oral irritation and bad breath. 

  • Rinse your dentures to remove loose food particles.
  • Use a soft-bristled brush to clean all surfaces of your denture with a non-abrasive cleaner to avoid scratches.
  • Use a soft-bristled brush to clean your gums, tongue, cheeks, and the roof of your mouth. This will stimulate circulation in your tissues and help to remove plaque.
  • When you aren’t wearing your dentures, store them safely and keep them covered in water to prevent them from warping.
  • It’s important to follow your dentist’s care and cleaning instructions and schedule regular check-ups.

What About Adhesives?

Various adhesives are available to help keep your dentures in place. You can use creams, powders, strips, liquids, or pads/wafers. Your dentist may recommend an adhesive for you, so follow their instructions and the instructions on the package.
