Dentures can give you the renewed ability to talk and eat as you once did with your natural teeth. However, it can take several weeks for you to adjust to this dental device. For instance, dentures may temporarily cause some speech issues. Practicing your talking abilities with your loved ones can help you can gain experience and confidence with your dentures. You should also slowly incorporate different foods into your diet. Dentures can withstand nearly any food, including fresh fruits and vegetables, but you may want to wait to try out these foods until you can comfortably eat less fibrous items. You may also want to schedule a follow-up appointment with your dentist so that he can address any initial discomfort or fit issues that you might have.
