Donning dentures can be a large adjustment for numerous people. If you’ve been fitted for false teeth recently, don’t worry; the staff at Whispering Pines Dental in Las Vegas, Nevada, has amassed this post for you to help you as you ease into this new transition.
If you are new to sporting false teeth, your dentist may recommend or prescribe some medications for you to take. During the first couple of weeks of wearing dentures, your oral cavity might need to adapt to the change; painkillers may 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 false teeth. If your remaining chompers are in poor condition, our team will extract them to make way for the dentures. They may also do surgeries to decrease bone tissue and soft gum tissue if they would interfere with the function of the dentures. Other denture-related treatments include aveloplasties, vestibular operations and dental implanting, all to prep the mouth to receive false teeth.
