Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that are constructed and formed in your mouth to replace lost or removed natural teeth.
Rather than ending up in a sea of information that’s difficult and time-consuming to sort through on your own, the best thing you can do if you need dentures is to visit Andrew J. Holloman, DDS & Associates

Leaving your dentures in at night does you more harm than good. Sleeping in dentures can negatively affect your saliva flow, which can give rise to a condition called denture stomatitis, also known as thrush.
It may take a few weeks to adjust to dentures, but once your mouth is strong, you can eat food normally.
Removable partial or full dentures require proper care to keep them clean, free from stains, and looking their best. For good denture care, here are steps to follow:
✓ Brush your dentures at least daily
✓ Clean your mouth after removing your dentures
✓ Handle your dentures carefully
✓ Remove and rinse dentures after eating
✓ Rinse dentures thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth
✓ Schedule regular dental checkups
✓ See your dentist if you have a loose fit
✓ Soak dentures overnight
Adjusting to new dentures may take about 30 days on average.
When you are first fitted for new dentures, it is normal to experience minor irritation, which should fade as your mouth becomes accustomed to them.
Your dentist should always be your first port of call whenever you experience problems with your dentures especially if they are loose or don’t fit.
