If you have just recently used dentures, you will find that it may take a while to get used to having the teeth replacements inside your mouth. Dental implants can put an end to the suffering caused by denture problems, which can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing.

These are the most common problems experienced by new denture users.

Weird feeling in the mouth

The feeling of the dentures inside the mouth will feel weird at first. It will take some time before the dentures feel so natural that you will forget that you have anything unnatural inside your mouth.

Uncomfortable fit

The dentures may not fit comfortably at first. If the feeling does not go away after a few days, you may want to ask your dentist to make small adjustments for more comfortable denture use.

Irritation and discomfort

Dentures can rub against the gums and inner mouth in an uncomfortable way. If the friction leads to mouth sores, go to your dentist and ask if any adjustments can be made to improve the fit of the dentures.

Unclear speech
