3 Helpful Tips For Young Denture Wearers

Whether you’ve lost teeth due to injury or oral disease, being told that you require dentures at a young age can be distressing. Here are some helpful tips to make the transition easier. 

Contrary to what most people think, dentures are not only for seniors or older patients. Tooth loss can strike at any age and can be due to a number of reasons, including: 

  • Lifestyle habits (eg. smoking) 
  • Poor oral hygiene 
  • Dental cavities 
  • Gum disease 
  • Injury 

Whatever the cause, and whatever your age, modern tooth replacement solutions from full/partial dentures to denture implants offer a long term solution free from worry and discomfort, giving you a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing smile.

A Guide to Wearing Dentures For Young Patients: 3 Helpful Tips 

For patients who are young, wearing dentures or getting denture implants can be a difficult experience. In some cases, it can even impact your self-confidence, happiness, and quality of life. But it doesn’t have to be a negative experience! 

To help you adjust to this new process, follow these 3 helpful tips: 

1. Consider All Your Denture Options 

Today, there are a wide variety of denture solutions available, from traditional full/partial dentures to flexible partials and denture implants. Because tooth replacement is not a one size fits all solution, it’s important to talk to your denturist about all your options and they can help determine which is right for you. 

Some of the tooth replacement options available include:

During a consultation, your denturist can help assess your needs and decide which tooth replacement solution is right for your lifestyle, budget, and health, to give you the best long-term outcome. 


2. Don’t Settle For Cheap Dentures

While it may be tempting to save money on your replacement teeth, opting for cheap, low-quality dentures will not only cause you pain and discomfort, but it will also lead to higher repair and replacement costs down the road. 

Customized Denture Solutions Are Best 

A set of full or partial dentures that fit your mouth well and which are tailored to mimic your natural teeth will help you feel happier and more comfortable with your new smile.

There are many different factors that need to be considered when making dentures, including: 

  • Your lip line
  • The size, shape, and color of your teeth 
  • How many teeth show when you smile 

When you opt for a set of quality and well-fitting dentures or denture implants, not only will they last longer, but they’ll look more natural so people won’t even notice you’re wearing replacement teeth. 



3. Be Patient 

For anyone who has suffered from tooth loss, dentures are an affordable and effective way of restoring your smile and making daily tasks, such as speaking and eating, easier. However, getting used to wearing dentures does require an adjustment period. 

You must be patient and remember that practice makes perfect!

To help you adjust faster to your new teeth, here are some helpful tips:

  • Begin by eating soft foods 
  • Avoid biting down into foods using your front teeth 
  • Use a denture adhesive to prevent your replacement teeth from slipping 
  • Chew on both sides of your mouth 
  • Practice speaking by reading out loud or talking to a trusted family member/friend 

Our Team Can Help Make The Transition Easier 

To facilitate the adjustment period, Future Smiles offers patients 3-6 months of FREE ADJUSTMENTS, depending on the type of denture you choose. During this time, we will adjust your replacement teeth as needed and provide any advice and after-care to help you avoid discomfort or any other oral health problems.
