Are You New to Wearing Dentures?

Posted .

Donning false teeth can be a big adjustment for multiple people. If you’ve been fitted for dentures recently, don’t worry; the team at Modern Dentistry of New England in Bristol, Connecticut, has assembled this post for you to assist you as you ease into this transition.

If you are new to donning dentures, Dr. Sherif Gabr might recommend or prescribe some medications for you to take. During the first couple of weeks of sporting false teeth, your mouth might need to adapt to the change; painkillers might be suitable during this time, depending on the endorsement of Dr. Sherif Gabr. Other medications they may prescribe include antifungal agents and oral flush for making sure your mouth and dentures are both clean.

While most people don’t think of dentures and surgery together, the truth is that from time to time surgery is needed to fit patients for dentures. If your remaining pearly whites are in poor condition, Dr. Sherif Gabr will extract them to make way for the false teeth. They may also perform surgical procedures to lessen bone tissue and soft gum tissue if they would interfere with the function of the false teeth. Other potential denture-related operations include aveloplasties, vestibular surgeries and dental implanting, all to prep the mouth to receive dentures.

You can make a visit with Dr. Sherif Gabr and the Modern Dentistry of New England staff by calling 860-582-4485 now or by dropping by their Bristol or West Hartford, Connecticut, practice.
