Patience, my friend! Patience… This is what adjusting to dentures is all about. As millions of denture wearers around the world know, it makes sense to go for it one bite at a time, slowly and steadily. Here’s a month-long calendar.
- Day 1 - Start by eating soft foods like mashed potatoes, puddings and ice cream that are gentle on your gums.
- Day 2 to 14 – You are beginning to adjust to your dentures. Increased salivation and sore spots are perfectly normal, so don’t worry. Try rinsing your mouth with warm salt water for increased comfort.
- Day 15 to 29 – You’re learning to talk and eat all over again, and the good news is that salivation and sore spots have lessened. Help your confidence by using a denture adhesive like Fixodent. It will immediately improve the fit of your denture giving you, in time, the possibility to enjoy even tough food.
- Day 30 - After a month from your first denture experience, you should be ready to enjoy life to the fullest. And remember, if at any time of this adjustment period you’re continuing to experience discomfort, please see your dentist who can check the fit of your dentures.
Go for it, slowly and steadily with our calendar. Go for it, thanks to the strength of Fixodent denture adhesive cream
