    If you are missing one or more teeth and thinking of getting dentures, you will first need a professional consultation with a dentist experienced in denture placement. During this time, you can explore your tooth prosthetic options, ask questions, and make a decision as to whether dentures are right for you. Expect the first few weeks to be an adjustment period, during which time you will adapt to the feel of your new dentures, as well as learn how to manipulate your tongue and cheek muscles to keep them in place. Your gums must first be prepared before you can begin wearing dentures. Once your dentures are ready, you can begin wearing them on a daily basis. An impression will then be taken of your gums and the supporting bones beneath the gum, which will be used to fabricate a complete or partial denture in a dental lab. If you need one or more teeth removed, the process could take several months while you wait for your gums to heal from the extractions. You may also experience slight irritation or soreness from the initial denture wear although this should subside after a number of days or weeks.
