Does Getting Dentures Hurt?
Does getting dentures hurt? – it depends
We’d love to be able to tell you that getting dentures is 100% pain free, but the truth is that there is often a level of discomfort associated with getting dentures. But the good news is that this level of discomfort is manageable. After all, the history of dentures dates back to the seventh century BC, so people have been getting dentures for thousands of years. Also, there are different kinds of dentures, and the answer to the question does it hurt to get dentures depends on the type of dentures. Let’s go over some different kinds of dentures and what you can expect in the way of discomfort when getting them.
Partial denturesPartial dentures are for people who only have some missing teeth. Most of the time there is no need for the dental prosthetist to extract any additional teeth when fitting someone for partial dentures. This means that partial dentures are the most pain-free of the denture types. But there may be some discomfort when you first start wearing you new dentures. This is perfectly normal and this discomfort will probably go away as you get used to wearing dentures.
Full denturesA set of full dentures consist of a prosthetic replacement of all the teeth in one’s mouth. In order to wear a full set of dentures, all of the patient’s remaining teeth will need to be extracted. This may sound scary, but it doesn’t have to be. Before the extraction takes place, the patient’s mouth will be injected with some medicine to numb all feeling in the gums. After the extraction the patient will feel some soreness in the gums. But this soreness won’t last long because the soft tissue in the mouth is the fastest healing part of the body. In only a few days the patient should start to feel a lot better. Just like partial dentures, a patient will need some time to get used to their new dentures. During that time there may be some additional discomfort, but it should go away.
