How quickly will i adapt to new denture? will it affect me eating?

​Wearing dentures may feel strange and getting used to it takes patience and time.It is normal to feel that it seems too big but once your muscles adapt to the new prosthesis you will start to be comfortable with it.

For some people the adjustment period takes a week while for others it takes a little longer. Multiple denture adjustment is possible however we will be happy to assist you through your difficulties and discuss the best options to get used to eating and chewing with your new dentures.

Dear Patients,

We are still open, but temporarily seeing patients only with essential dental needs.

Thank you

SLDC Team
