Permanent dentures are a wonderful way to repair the smile after tooth loss has occurred. They are often chosen by patients who sustained extensive damage to their natural teeth and had them all extracted. These false teeth require appropriate care to keep them functioning and looking great. Dr. Suril Amin and the team of The Denture and Implant Clinic in Surrey take the time to educate patients who have received permanent dentures on the importance of taking care of them to extend longevity.
Types of false teeth
Surrey area patients know that there are many ways to repair their smiles. Types of dentures include:
- Full dentures
- Partial dentures
- Implant-supported dentures
Implant-supported dentures are often called permanent dentures because they use implants to hold them in place. This provides ultimate stability and is the most desirable option for many of our patients.
How to care for false teeth
The best way to care for false teeth is to follow the instructions of Dr. Suril Amin. He can educate patients on how to keep their dentures clean and how to protect them if they are not being worn. This includes putting them in a special case or soaking them in denture cleaner solution. Traditional dentures do not need to be flossed in the same way natural teeth do, but any existing teeth in the smile should be managed as advised in the past. False teeth that are broken or do not fit as they once did should be checked by a dental professional to determine if changes or replacement should be done. This ensures that they do not rub or cause discomfort that could keep patients from wearing them.
