In order to get the most out of your dentures you will have to commit time to looking after them. Just like your natural teeth, if you do not care for them properly they will become damaged and require further repairs in the future.
If you are getting dentures for the first time then it can take some time to become acclimated to your new dentures. The first couple of weeks will require you to eat soft foods, gradually introducing harder foods into your diet over time. It is perfectly normal to experience some minor discomfort during this initial stage as you adjust to your new dentures.
Your dentures will need to be kept clean, brushed twice daily with a denture toothbrush and toothpaste. This will keep them clean and prevent them from staining over time. Keeping your dentures in water over night keeps them from warping and allows your gums to breath.
