Frequently Asked Questions about Dentures in Webster

If you are considering dentures, you probably have several questions. We have answered a few of the most frequently asked questions below, but please reach out to us if you do not see your question listed.

Can I Sleep in My Dentures?
It’s most ideal for you to remove and clean your dentures at night. Your dentures should be stored in water at night. This allows your jaw and gums a chance to rest from the pressures of the dentures. Additionally, your mouth and denture will still require proper daily hygiene, and night time is typically the most ideal time to do this.
Are Dentures Comfortable?
After getting used to your dentures, you should not experience any pain or discomfort.

Most patients report that dentures feel very different from natural teeth, especially if you have a complete denture. But, over time you will become accustomed to the feeling of dentures.

How do I take Care of My Dentures?
Like your natural teeth, your dentures should be thoroughly cleaned every day with a denture brush and a denture cleaning agent. Toothpaste is often too abrasive for dentures, so be sure to use a paste or soap recommended by Dr. Cohen. After cleaning, your dentures should be kept in water overnight to keep them moist and prevent them from drying out and losing their shape.
Can I Eat Normally in Dentures?
Patients with dentures should avoid chewing gum, but otherwise can eat normally. However, you should expect a learning curve when eating sticky, hard, or extra crunchy foods.
