Though they can restore much of the original functionality and appearance of a mouth ravaged by edentulism (tooth loss), dentures are not a replacement for natural teeth. As dentists, we want to save as many natural teeth as much as possible, so jumping right into dentures might not necessarily be the best decision. Once receiving dentures, it will not be possible to immediately eat and chew normally; it is going to take some time to fully adjust. When we deliver new dentures to patients, we make them aware that they will require a trial period of about five to six weeks before they start to feel comfortable with their dentures.
