In the beginning, your new partial denture may feel awkward or bulky. This is normal, and you will eventually become accustomed to wearing it. Inserting and removing the partial denture will require some practice.Follow all instructions given by your dentist. Your denture should fit into place with relative ease. Never force the partial denture into position by biting down. This could bend or break the clasps. Your dentist will give you specific instruction about how long the denture should be worn and when it should be removed.
