Finding Solutions to Denture Problems in Oakville


Finding Solutions to Denture Problems in Oakville Area

Dentures have long been an excellent solution for individuals who are dealing with unhealthy or missing teeth. Dentures are an easy, non-invasive way to replace missing teeth and reclaim a beautiful smile. If you are having issues with your dentures, we can help at Sherwood Dental serving Oakville, ON. Keep reading to learn more about denture problems and solutions.

Eating Problems

When you first get dentures, you may find that eating is a little bit difficult. You are basically learning a new skill, eating with dentures, and it might take you a while to get the hang of it. It is important to remember that eating with dentures will feel different than eating with natural teeth. If you experience your dentures slipping out of place while you are eating, try chewing your food evenly on both sides of your mouth. This can help.

Another issue people face while eating with dentures is that some foods can become stuck under dentures and cause discomfort. While you are learning to eat with dentures, stick to soft foods that are easy to chew. With time and practice, you will eventually be able to eat most of the foods you enjoyed with your natural teeth.

Speaking Problems

Another issue people deal with is learning to speak with dentures; again, this will take some time and practice. Your teeth are actually a very important part of your speech. People often do not realize how much they use their teeth to form words. One way you can help yourself is by practicing each day in front of a mirror. This way, you can make mistakes and learn how to form words more clearly without the added pressure of trying to communicate with someone.
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
