Hello,

You can wear your partials throughout the day, but it's best to take them out at night during sleep and soak them in a denture cleaner. That gives your gums a break, prevents bacteria and plaque from building up on them, prevents cavities forming underneath on your natural teeth, prevents sore spots, especially if you have dry mouth from certain meds you may be on, and prevents swallowing them, especially if they are loose and ill-fitting!
Great question!

Thank you,

Dr. J

Hello,

As long as the dentist properly numbs you with anesthetic, you should be fine pain-wise with either procedure. A root canal is more expensive and should be restored with a crown or permanent restoration soon afterwards. But it is a way of saving your tooth instead of extracting it since you are so young! Sometimes with an extraction, you can end up with a dry socket, which can be quite painful.
Great question.

Thank you,

Dr. J

Hello,

If you have a quality, well made set of dentures, you should be able to talk clearly and chew your food properly. They should be tight and retentive and sometimes Poligrip or Fixident denture adhesive is needed if a little loose. Sometimes a denture reline will help, too, or on the more expensive aspect, implants. If they are a new set, practice reading and talking out loud when you are alone to help your facial muscles adapt to the newness of them.
Good luck.

Hello,

Great question! Porcelain teeth are much more expensive/heavier/durable, but if you have porcelain teeth on the opposing arch, it is best to keep materials the same to prevent undue wear/attrition. Sometimes people complain of hearing noise (clickity-clack) in their heads with porcelain teeth. Acrylic teeth are most popular today which create nice esthetics and masticatory function at a lesser expense!

If you had this done recently, I would start eating soft foods like eggs and trying to balance your food evenly while chewing. Eventually, you can try other textured foods when you build up confidence in chewing. Your facial muscles and your intra oral muscles will help you adapt to eating anything you want eventually!
Good luck.
