Full dentures are used when there are no teeth left but gums to support.
Full dentures are harder to get accustomed to than partial dentures which
are supported by a few remaining teeth. Most of all, getting used to
having dentures in your mouth is the key. You need to be extremely
patient to get used to those dentures while trying to bear the feeling of
foreign substances, keeping them in your mouth, cutting foods into small
pieces and taking more time to chew than before and so on.
As you feel more comfortable with dentures, the denture base that holds
the artificial teeth stabilizes with gums, which enables you to chew
better and eat your favorite foods. Once full dentures settle down, not
only will chewing strength be recovered and the muscles around the mouth (perioral
muscles) and jaw be restored but the bloodstream to the brain will get
better, keeping you in youthful energy.
Good dentures make you chew, speak and feel as natural as if they were
your own real teeth. Pleasant days and a bright future are yours.

Dentures that move whenever you chew give pains in some parts of the gums
and undesirably affect your pronunciation.
Custom-made dentures suitable to your specific gums are designed to
stabilize the dentures in your mouth. When you have reduced gums,
orthodontist will maximize the stability of dentures by making wide
dentures. Sometimes metal teeth are used to enable you to chew with ease.
The smaller and the thinner the dentures are, the less likely you have the
sense of foreign substances. A thin metal base makes dentures more
adjustable and pleasant to wear.
