A new denture, partial or complete, is very difficult, for some, to adjust to. ‘It feels bulky’, ‘It moves when I talk or eat’, are common comments after a person receives their new denture. Most first dentures of any type will feel bulky and mobile, especially in cases where extractions have just occurred. Usually within 4 – 6 weeks, the healing will be sufficient that a proper fit can be created and the denture will feel more ‘at home’.
In cases where no extractions have happened, the denture will be mobile and bulky until it settles into the tissue and the occlusion has been adjusted by the Denturist on a few occasions. This is why after care is critical to the overall success of the treatment.
