3 Common Myths About Dentures, Kalispell, Montana

If you've been thinking about getting dentures, it's important to know what to expect. Unfortunately, there's a lot of misinformation out there. Separate fact from fiction by reviewing this guide so you can make an educated decision for your future.

Common Misconceptions About Dentures

1. You Can’t Eat While Wearing Them

When your dentist first fits you for dentures, there'll be an adjustment period. During this time, you'll get accustomed to how they feel in your mouth, and you'll get better at speaking and eating while wearing them. Once that adjustment period is over, you'll be able to return to your normal diet with very few restrictions and minimal difficulty.

2. They Look Fake

denturesDentures used to be easily recognizable because they looked different from real teeth. However, modern cosmetic dentistry technology has changed that. Dentures can now be designed to mimic your natural teeth, so no one will know you're wearing them.

3. They Last Forever

In many cases, dentures will not last for your entire lifetime. They typically last around five to seven years, though some may last longer if they're cared for properly. Visit your dentist regularly for checkups, keep the dentures moist when they're not being used, and clean them daily to keep them functioning for years to come.
