i have been given a one tooth denture as i had a tooth extracted thats visible when i talk and smile. AT the moment i have not been wearing it because i cant taste anything proper and i talk with a lisp and it just doesnt feel right. Will i ever get used to it? Hs anybody else had this experiemce at first and then got used to it afterwards? Anybodys experience of wearing a partial denture would really help me think more positive. And why do you think i cant taste my food proper when wearing it???:cry:

Hi, I have a partial immediate denture for 6 bottom front teeth. What you are experiencing is normal. I had the whole no taste issue in the beginning. It's been two years almost now and I have no problems with taste or lisp for quite some time. Give the partial a chance because it will really get better.
