Adjusting to Life With Dentures

Whether you’re talking, eating, or smiling for a photo, having a set of teeth that functions well is important to your well-being. If you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth to trauma or decay, dentures can give you a new lease on life.

Today’s modern dentures fully restore your smile, making it easy to live a healthy lifestyle. At New Teeth Chicago Dental, Dr. Irfan Atcha uses cutting-edge dentistry techniques to create implant-based dentures.

If you’re considering getting dentures, here’s what you can do to make sure you stay healthy and thrive after the procedure.

Keep your dentures clean

Similarly to how you take care of natural teeth, it’s important to brush and floss your dentures. If you don’t keep them clean, your dentures can also collect plaque and bacteria.

Wearing clean dentures not only supports your overall health, it also ensures that your dentures last as long as possible. When you get your dentures fitted, Dr. Atcha will show you how to brush and clean your dentures, and which products to use.

Practice talking and chewing with your new dentures

Well-fitted dentures have the potential to improve your speech and allow you to eat foods you couldn’t chew well previously. You’ll experience a learning curve, as the way you move your mouth to eat and talk will be different than before you were fitted for dentures.

Start out by speaking and chewing slowly, and eat softer foods until you get comfortable chewing with your dentures. Practice saying difficult words and phrases by yourself in front of the mirror.

Keep up with good oral hygiene

Every night, you’ll remove your dentures before going to sleep. This not only keeps your dentures safe, it also gives you the opportunity to take care of the rest of your mouth.

After taking out your dentures at night and before inserting them in the morning, it’s important to brush your tongue and gums. You’ll keep your mouth clean and prevent gum disease, as well as improve circulation in your mouth.

Don’t miss your regular dental checkups

It’s important that you continue to see Dr. Atcha, just as you did before getting dentures. At your appointment, he ensures that your dentures are still in good condition and fit properly, and he assesses your overall oral health.

Dr. Atcha specializes in treating patients who need full or partial dentures to restore full functioning of their mouth. Over a series of appointments, he fits custom full or partial implant-based dentures that will feel comfortable, allow you to chew and speak more easily, and increase your confidence. 

New Teeth Chicago Dental is conveniently located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. To discover if full or partial implants are right for you, call us at 312-219-9524 or send us a message here on our website to set up an initial consultation.

Meet Dr. Irfan Atcha

“I am Dr. Atcha and I focus on helping people who have been struggling to find the answers for their serious dental issues with missing and failing teeth when everything they’ve tried before has failed.”

Dr. Atcha is a diplomat implantologist and a cosmetic dentist nationally recognized in complex dental implant cases, complex cosmetic dentistry cases, digital implant dentistry, and sedation dentistry. Dr. Atcha holds dental licenses in Illinois, Florida, and California.

Dr. Atcha prides himself in making sure every patient receives first-class treatment and achieves a million-dollar smile, which enhances their self-confidence and self-esteem. His commitment to providing the highest value of care from the moment you open the doors to New Teeth Chicago Dental is evident through his patients’ impressive reviews.

I know how frustrating it is… I’ve talked with hundreds of patients, many of them get so emotional, who lived every day with embarrassment, pain, and hopelessness because of missing and damaged teeth or ill fitting dentures and partial dentures or they’ve been told they are NOT a good candidate for dental implants due to lack of jaw bone.

“These patients thought they would be trapped with those feeling for the rest of their lives, but together, we found a way, and we provided hope with the care we provided that worked, and now they live fulfilled lives, with healthy, fully-functioning, and beautiful smiles.”
