Losing your teeth can have devastating effects on your life, but even replacing them with removable or permanent dentures can present challenges. Getting affordable quality dentures can restore your self-esteem and your oral health, but like any major change, you’ll have to make adjustments in your routine and lifestyle. As you get used to wearing and caring for your removable or permanent dentures, there are many ways you can incorporate new and healthy habits into your day. In fact, your new life with dentures can even be exciting. You’ll soon be eating and smiling with confidence, and a healthier lifestyle will be the icing on the cake.

Ramp Up Your Self-Care



Transition periods can be stressful, so it’s especially important to make sure your body has all the nutrients it needs while you’re adjusting to your dentures. When you’re able to add chewy and crunchy textures back into your diet, you’ll have exciting opportunities to try new healthy foods that you were unable to eat without your teeth. To maintain optimum energy levels, get plenty of sleep. Keep your body healthier buy avoiding tobacco, and limit your alcohol consumption.

The Dental Dentures Daily Drill



Exercise elevates mood, enhances self-confidence, and increases energy levels. Adding a healthy workout to your day lowers your blood pressure and improves your circulation. With the added stress of learning about your new dentures, you need the extra boost. You can incorporate daily exercise into your denture care routine by getting out of the house for a brisk walk or jog after inserting your dentures. You can get your daily steps in while you smile with newfound confidence at passers-by. Remember to warm up and cool down with gentle stretches to protect your muscles. When your energy levels start to soar, you’ll begin to associate your denture care with a feeling of well-being and high self-esteem.
