So, are you wondering on how you can get used
to talking again, with partial dentures? Well, my name is Michelle, and I’m a dental assistant
with Solutionz, and I’m going to talk to you today, about different ways, on how you can
get used to talking again, with partial dentures, especially if you’ve never had them before,
and you’ve just recently had several teeth extracted, and you have a partial denture.
It’s going to take some time, and usually, a lot of times what we recommend to patients,
is if they wear their partial dentures as much as possible, this will help function
with them, a lot better. It usually takes about a good two to three days, for you to
actually start talking correctly again. A lot of times what the patients will start
doing, is they actually talk with a lisp, so it usually takes about a good two to three
days. The more that you talk, say if you can actually take a book and read a book out loud,
the more that you can talk, actually your body will start to become accustomed to the
partial dentures, and it will actually just basically train itself. Your tongue and your
lips will just form around them, and your body will become accustomed, and just train
itself, back to talking without the lisp, so function with them as much as possible.
A lot of times, you’ll start getting sore spots, and a lot of times what people do,
is they’ll take them out, and then not wear them. That’s just defeating the purpose, so
if you can wear them as much as possible, and just go see your general dentist, so therefore,
he can adjust out the sore spots. These are all great options, on how you can get used
to talking again, with partial dentures, but once again, my name is Michelle. I’m a dental
assistant with Solutionz, and I just gave you a couple of little tips, on how you can
get used to talking, with partial dentures.

  1. Unless the tongue is crowded by a incorrect bite or too much acrylic on the plate! Normally the speech is only very slightly changed and corrects in one day. The dentist should ask you to talk normally and listen if there is and lisping etc when you talk. Sometime when the tryin stage is done in wax, phonetics should be checked. This isnt the case with a immediate and it will take time for the muscles in the mouth and face to relax and adjust to the prosthetics. Also the soft tissue to heal.

  2. I have a temporary bridge in and t's big bolky and I have a bad lisp and my bridge is all over the place I can't bite down normally it hurts to chew my dentist said it's my bite but I know it's not

  3. After getting my bridge fixed….I noticed that I can't chew anymore….n esp .I can't chew meat or chicken….I feel as if I am just trying to grind it partially that's it….
