For example, wearing dentures can be compared to a new pair of shoes. As long as the denture plates are a good fit, the discomfort should be minimal until the person gets used to wearing them. While it is not uncommon for this to happen, the person should address this with their dentist if it lasts more than 48 hours. This way the dentist can make adjustments that will alleviate the issue.

What’s The Right Way To Floss?
- First tear about 18″ of floss. Pinch it at each end with your thumb and forefinger, or wind the ends around your finger so the length of floss will be taut.
- Guide the floss gently between your teeth with a sawing motion. Don’t force it in between your teeth as you could cause your gums to bleed this way. Bend the floss around each tooth and slide it up and down. Then lift the floss out from between your teeth.
- Wind the floss to a new section for each new tooth
