Donning false teeth can be a huge adjustment for lots of people. If you’ve been fitted for dentures just recently, don’t worry; the team at Mission Ranch Dental Aesthetics in Ladera Ranch, California, has amassed this post for you to assist you as you ease into this transition.
If you are new to donning false teeth, your dentist may endorse or prescribe some medications for you to take. During the first couple of weeks of sporting false teeth, your oral cavity may need to adjust to the change; painkillers could be appropriate during this time, depending on the suggestion of your dentist. Other medications they may prescribe include antifungal agents and dental rinse for making sure your oral cavity and dentures are clean.
While most people don’t think of false teeth and surgery together, the truth is that from time to time surgery is needed to fit patients for dentures. If your remaining teeth are in poor condition, your dentist will extract them to make way for the dentures. They may also do surgeries to diminish bone tissue and soft gum tissue if they would interfere with the function of the dentures. Other denture-related processes include aveloplasties, vestibular operations and oral implanting, all to prep the mouth to receive false teeth.
